Course summary

Course overview

This four-year Linguistics with French degree concentrates on developing your understanding of how languages function, how we communicate and the growth of language in the brain. You'll explore linguistics in the context of English and French language. You will build a firm foundation of skills and knowledge to pursue many career paths.

Building your fluency in French alongside your study of linguistics will give you a unique perspective on the language. You will study French from intermediate or advanced level depending on your previous experience.

In your third year, you'll immerse yourself in Francophone culture as you spend the year in a French speaking country, further improving your language skills and confidence, and gaining a first-hand appreciation for the language in context.

Our cutting-edge programme – shaped by the research specialisms of our world-leading staff – ensures your studies explore the latest ideas and most exciting areas of linguistics, such as:
