Course summary

The MA for Research in French and Francophone Studies has been expertly designed to develop your research skills and interests. Study at the University of Warwick's School of Modern Languages and Cultures and deepen your understanding of core critical theories and perspectives surrounding French and Francophone studies.

Course Overview

Are you keen to specialise in the academic study of your chosen language and culture, and do you have the motivation to develop an individual research path, leading potentially to PhD study? This course combines taught modules with language-specific research and offers an advanced preparation for doctoral research. You’ll work with the support of leading researchers, drawing on expertise in critical theory, research skills and key research themes. You’ll benefit from an introduction to critical theories and perspectives across the European and North American intellectual traditions, as well as develop your own research specialism in French Studies.

Teaching

Researchers across the four languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish) collaborate to teach the core critical modules, and we encourage interdisciplinary teaching or supervision within and outside Modern Languages through optional taught modules, Advanced Study Options, and your dissertation. Advanced Study Options enable you to pursue individual research pathways with the guidance of a tutor or tutors before undertaking your dissertation.

Assessment

1. A taught core module on cultural and critical theory, typically taken in the first term, and assessed by a 5,000 word essay.
