Lancaster’s MLang degree is a selective and accelerated programme enabling you to achieve an MA in one or two languages and related studies in four years. It is taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures and includes an international study placement in year 2.In Year 1, you will study core language modules which aim to strengthen your reading, writing and speaking ability. You will have the opportunity to engage with advanced grammar and develop key translation and composition skills. This is complemented by language-specific modules, introducing you to your language’s political, historical and cultural context.
