Course summary

French is a major world language, in Africa as well as in Europe and Canada. Its art and thought have played a central part in creating our modern civilisation. Studying French and History helps us understand the world in which we live now, as well as shedding light on the past. Studying on 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 political history 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, including specialist options taught by leading experts in their fields. The discipline of history involves study of the human past, adopting a critical approach to evidence. Work in history takes the form of interaction with the evidence in primary form and through sceptical reading of a wide body of historical writing. The Edinburgh experience is distinctive for the range of historical themes, chronological periods and geographical areas which you can study using a variety of different intellectual approaches to the past.
