Course summary

French is a major world language, in Africa as well as in Europe and Canada. This programme enables you to study French in the context of the many countries, cultures and societies, worldwide, in which it is spoken. Through intense language training, you have the opportunity to acquire near-native fluency while gaining the broad cultural education prized by graduate employers. French art and thought have played a central part in creating our modern civilisation, and you'll explore Francophone literature and cinema, fascinating political history, social movements 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 field. Topics include post-colonial studies, gender studies and word and music studies, among others. Uniquely in Scotland, studying at Edinburgh enables you to take a full year abroad as part of your four-year undergraduate programme, either studying, teaching or working. You'll therefore spend Year 3 in a country where French is spoken.
