Course summary

Develop a deeper understanding of your chosen languages and associated cultures with our MA.

You’ll explore the relationship between language, identity, culture and place, in the context of an increasingly interconnected and complex world.

Course description

This MA helps you develop a deeper understanding of your chosen languages and associated cultures.

Working with nationally and internationally recognised experts, you can focus on a single discipline (eg French Studies) or undertake an interdisciplinary programme across two or more languages and cultures. You can engage with topics such as translation theory, intersectionality, sociolinguistics and environmental studies, as well as literature, linguistics, cultural studies, history, visual and film studies, politics, society, migration, and postcolonial or gender studies.

The programme is ideal for students with a background in French and Francophone studies, Germanic studies (German and Dutch), Hispanic and Lusophone studies (Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese; Latin America), Luxembourgish studies, or Russian and Slavonic studies (Russian and Czech; the former USSR).

This MA is also designed to prepare you for doctoral study. You'll build knowledge in your chosen specialist field through your choice of modules and your dissertation topic, which could be the foundation for a PhD project. We’ll give you guidance on how to construct a PhD proposal and apply for scholarship funding.
