Course summary

Language is fundamental to our thoughts, our relationships, and our civilisations. Through language, we transmit knowledge, from inviting someone for coffee, to promoting the latest scientific theory, to settling global political disputes.This five-year course integrates your undergraduate and postgraduate studies into one course, graduating with an Integrated Masters in Modern Languages. You specialise in at least two modern languages, studying one to our highest Mastery level. Language study is combined from the fourth year with translation and subtitling skills. Your progress will depend on reaching target grades each year.In your first and second years, you study practical language modules to develop your language skills. French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish can be studied to Mastery level. These languages are all widely used in the business world and many of our graduates have developed successful global careers with international firms.Your third year is spent studying abroad with modules taken in language and translation. In your fourth year, you return to Essex and carry out an independent research project, supported by your supervisor. This project develops your ability to conduct research, work with complex sources of information in your chosen language and employ research methods. You also develop your analytical thinking and problem-solving skills and expand your linguistic and translation skills and communication proficiency in your chosen language. The project is the culmination of both your undergraduate studies and preparation for your final year where you take postgraduate modules.
