Course summary

Lancaster's joint French Studies and Computing is taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures in conjunction with the School of Computing and Communications. The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017 ranks French Studies 2nd in the UK while the School of Computing received the highest award in its most recent Periodic Quality Review of teaching. Your French Studies programme enables you to acquire high-level language skills while gaining a thorough understanding of the country's historical, cultural, social and political background in a global context. In Computing, you'll focus on developing professional skills, including extensive study of software and systems development. Your first year comprises an exploration of the French language and its cultural context, as well as core modules in the fundamentals of computer science and software development. Alongside this, you will study a minor subject of your choice. Building on your language skills in Year 2, you will study the culture, politics and history of the French-speaking world in more depth, as well as selecting modules which are international in scope and promote a comparative understanding of Europe and beyond. You will combine these with modules such as Databases, HCI, Networking and Software Design. Spending your third year abroad in a French-speaking country makes a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement. In your final year, you consolidate your French language skills, and study specialist culture and comparative modules, such as Translation as a Cultural Practice. You will also select Computing modules such as Internet Applications Engineering and Artificial Intelligence.
