Course summary

Birmingham’s fusion of language and culture places employability at its heart, preparing you to live and work as an engaged citizen of the world.

The undergraduate study of either French, German, Spanish or Russian from beginner or advanced level alongside History is highly complementary and an exciting way to contextualise your knowledge in each discipline. Researching primary sources is a key feature of any undergraduate History degree course, and studying a language dramatically increases the range of primary sources that you will be able to access. At the University of Birmingham, language is taught through the lens of the target culture's literature, history, politics and society, and through total immersion on the Year Abroad.

Employability

This programme provides both academic excellence and vocational development; a highly sought-after balance by employers in today's professional, intellectual and creative industries. Over 90% of our graduates enter work or further study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2017).

  • Strong communication skills in English and your target language
