Course summary

French is a major world language, in Africa as well as in Europe and Canada. The Francophone world has a fascinating social and political history. This programme enables you to study French in the context of the many countries, cultures and societies, worldwide, in which the language is spoken, as well as Social Policy - the distribution of welfare and wellbeing within societies and the policies which influence that distribution. Studying on this programme will lead you to near-native fluency in the French language, thanks to our four years of intensive training, including a year abroad. At the same time, you will explore French culture – its literature, cinema, political history and philosophical ideas; we can offer you a wide range of courses spanning the Middle Ages to the twenty-first century. In Social Policy, your focus will be on social and economic change, what causes it and its consequences for society. Reflecting how policies are developed, you will learn about both the policy-making process in the UK (including devolution in Scotland and elsewhere) along with the influence of international bodies such as the European Union and OECD.
