What will I study?

This section provides an outline of the content of this Another Subject plus a Modern Language (Arts and Social Science Subjects) course. Each year you'll study a series of modules, some of these are compulsory and others can be selected from a range of optional modules.

In addition to the language the syllabus includes a broad range of stimulating options. First-year courses include an introduction to the history, culture, cinema and literatures of Europe. Second- and final-year options offer increasing levels of specialisation as you proceed towards your degree. They cover a wide variety of cultural and literary material from various centuries but with emphasis on the modern period. All the languages offer modules on the history, cinema and media of their linguistic area. If you are studying language as a minor component you will take core language modules only.
