French is a major world language, spoken in many parts of Europe, Africa and the Americas. French art and thought have played a central part in creating our modern civilisation. Studying French and History helps us understand the contemporary world, while shedding light on the past.**French** You will have the opportunity to acquire near-native fluency in this widely-spoken modern language, while gaining the broad cultural education valued by graduate employers. You will explore aspects of French culture, including Francophone literature and cinema, political history, social movements and philosophical ideas. Our courses cover material from the Middle Ages to the 21st Century and include specialist options taught by leading experts in their field. **History** Studying the human past, you will interact with evidence in primary form, and through sceptical reading of a wide body of historical writing. The Edinburgh experience is distinctive for its range of historical themes, chronological periods and geographical areas.
