Course summary

Birkbeck's Graduate Diploma in French Studies is ideal for those excited by the thought of studying French language, literature and culture at postgraduate level. This course will help you become a proficient French speaker, with a critical appreciation of the literature and film, culture and contemporary history of France and French-speaking countries. You will also improve your research and study skills. You can choose option modules from a diverse and challenging syllabus.

This course is particularly aimed at those who would like to take a Master's degree in French, or a degree with a focus on French studies, but who need to bring their written French up to the right level. This course is also aimed at those who do not have a BA honours qualification in French and those with a qualification at, or near, BA level who would like to take a one-year qualification.

This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study. Graduate Certificates/Diplomas typically take one to two years to complete and are made up of two, three or four modules at final-year undergraduate degree level (worth 60, 90 or 120 credits).

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go in to careers in international organisations or businesses, translating and teaching, research and journalism. Possible professions include translator, teacher, researcher, or journalist. This degree may also be useful in becoming a Diplomatic Services operational officer or interpreter.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
