Course summary

Open up international pathways as you develop your understanding of the language and cultures of the French-speaking world.

Course overview

During this course, you will have the opportunity to develop your language to a very high level through the study of the history, diversity and cultures of the francophone world. You will have the chance to work or study abroad and gain invaluable employment skills and knowledge of current affairs.

Why study this course with us?

At Chester, you will have the chance to undertake a short placement at the end of Year 2 (Level 5) as well as the opportunity to spend an academic year in a French-speaking country. If this is an option for you, it allows you to split your experience of residence abroad, offering you the chance to spend time on different types of placement and, indeed, in different countries.

Teaching methods

You will be taught in a dynamic Department located in purpose-built accommodation that includes three digital language laboratories, study rooms, and a dedicated resources room. All modules are taught in workshop mode.

Assessment

All four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking – will be assessed. You will be assessed via a variety of formats: essays, role plays, presentations, summaries, debates, portfolios, discussion papers, translations, projects, dissertation and exams.

Job prospects

A degree in French develops an impressive range of skills including strong communication and presentation skills, the ability to work autonomously and in groups, analytical and critical discernment and the resilience and confidence developed during placements abroad. Graduates often pursue further study or careers in translation, teaching, business, hospitality, civil service or in international organisations.
