Course summary

Many of the basic concepts underlying Western society found expression for the first time in ancient Greek or Latin, and - together with French - they are the language of many highly influential literary and cultural works. Studying French and Classics helps us understand the world in which we live now, as well as shedding light on the past. This programme will lead you to near-native fluency in the French language, thanks to our four years of intensive training. At the same time, you will explore French culture – its literature and cinema, but also its fascinating political history, social movements and philosophical ideas. As a large subject area, French and Francophone studies at the University of Edinburgh can offer you a wide range of courses spanning the Middle Ages to the 21st century. Taught by leading experts, specialisms include post-colonial studies, gender studies and word and music studies, among others. Classics combines both linguistic and philological work, as well as the study of two civilisations that utilised what we call the classical languages in a wide range of different contexts - including political, religious and philosophical - and in different societal niches. Our aim is for you to acquire a sound grammatical understanding of both ancient Greek and Latin, a good knowledge of the vocabulary and the different uses of both languages by different authors and an appreciation of the rapport between the different ancient societies that used these languages, as well as their relationship to their languages and literatures.
