Course summary

French is a major world language, spoken in many parts of Europe, Africa and the Americas. The language is your gateway to a great many cultural and artistic movements. Studying French and History of Art 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 through intensive language study at Edinburgh and a year abroad.You will explore aspects of French culture, including Francophone literature and cinema, its 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 of Art** Beyond the Francophone world, History of Art will introduce you to art from different periods and cultures around the globe. You will learn how, and for whom, works of art were made. You will also explore their meaning and discover the ways in which they can be interpreted. **Why Edinburgh** Edinburgh is a world-leading festival city filled with galleries, cinemas, theatres, libraries and collections. Highlights include the four National Galleries of Scotland, and outstanding French holdings in the National Library of Scotland.We are unique in Scotland in offering students a full academic year abroad within the four-year honours programme, regardless of whether you spend the year studying or working. Our programme is also extremely flexible.
