Course summary

If you are looking for a course that gives you the ability to communicate freely in Japanese and Korean, together with an understanding of cultural, political and economic contexts within those countries where the languages are spoken, the UCLan Modern Languages degree is not only a personally enriching experience but also develops your understanding of the recent history, contemporary society, culture and economy within foreign countries. The two languages are combined; you may be able to study from ab-initio level where no prior knowledge of the language is required, but you should have experience in at least one of your languages.You could move on to a variety of successful careers in international business, consultancy, translation/interpreting, or worldwide teaching. Our graduates are enjoying careers in many international organisations including Merill Lynch, Reuters and diplomatic embassies.If studied over four years, your third year is normally spent abroad in the country/countries of the main target language on a work placement, a study placement at a partner institution or as a Foreign Language Assistant in a school. This will enable you to greatly enhance your language skills and improve your confidence when communicating in the language in the international environment.
