About the course

Explore the relationship between language, identity, culture and place, in the context of an increasingly interconnected and complex world.

This MA helps you develop a deeper understanding of your chosen languages and associated cultures.

Working with nationally and internationally recognised experts, you can focus on a single discipline (eg French Studies) or undertake an interdisciplinary programme across two or more languages and cultures. You can engage with topics such as translation theory, intersectionality, sociolinguistics and environmental studies, as well as literature, linguistics, cultural studies, history, visual and film studies, politics, society, migration, and postcolonial or gender studies.
