The French Studies degree offers an in-depth, multidimensional knowledge not only of French language but also of French and francophone literature, culture, society, and politics.

This course contains face-2-face elements, we welcome applications from anyone who will be able to commit to these sessions.

The degree enables you to focus in-depth on studying the French language through and alongside the historical, cultural, geographical and political contexts in which French is spoken across the world. You will cover topics spanning politics, philosophy, literature, visual culture and history.

Wherever you decide your interests lie, you can tailor your programme of study in a way that suits you. Part-time students are integrated into our undergraduate programme for full-time students. You will be part of a dynamic, interdisciplinary, research-active culture, playing an active part in your own learning.

Having developed foundation skills in the first two years of the degree, you will hone your language abilities in subsequent years of study and explore your own academic interests beyond the language. You will consolidate your learning with time spent abroad. 

All classes are taught in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures.
