For centuries, both English and Portuguese-speaking cultures have had a profound international influence on literature. This programme aims to develop your critical, analytic, linguistic and creative skills by engaging with a broad range of texts in both English and Portuguese, and a variety of approaches to reading. Through intensive language training, including a year in a Portuguese-speaking country, you have the opportunity to:* learn to read, write and speak Portuguese to a high standard * gain the broad cultural education prized by graduate employersPortuguese is the ninth most widely spoken language in the world. From Brazil to Mozambique, the many countries where it's spoken have fascinatingly rich and varied cultures. On this joint programme, you' ll learn the Portuguese language in the context of an extraordinary range of literature, film, music and arts from Europe, Latin America and Lusophone Africa, past and present. Likewise, our English Literature curriculum explores the cultural contexts of writing in English from the late Middle Ages to the present.
