Course summary

Our BA French and History will allow you to pursue a wide array of historical interests while studying the most widely spoken native language in Europe. Knowledge of French will give you the edge as a budding historian as it offers access to an expansive French-speaking scholarly literature and primary sources relevant to European and international history. Modern Languages and Linguistics provides a lively and well-equipped academic environment, which focuses on linguistic training and the study of contemporary European culture. In history you will be able to follow your interests thanks to our unusually flexible course structure and wide variety of modules, supported by lecturers who are experts in their fields. We will help you develop vital skills of research, analysis and communication, and our innovative group project give you a chance to study as part of a team. In your final year you will study a historical theme in depth, accompanied by a dissertation involving your own creative research. Southampton is ranked in the top three history departments for research, meaning our students learn from world-leading researchers (REF, 2014).We offer extremely flexible degree programmes, with a rare breadth of topics not commonly taught in British universities. Our unique archival resources include the Wellington, Palmerston and Mountbatten Papers, and the Parkes Archives specialising in Jewish history.
