About the course

Advanced knowledge of European cultures and languages, spoken worldwide, has never been more important. The MA Modern Languages offers you guided graduate study in French, German, Italian or Spanish studies or in any two of these areas. With a blend of disciplinary and interdisciplinary studies you will engage with current humanities research in foreign-language areas, guided by internationally recognised scholars. In some cases, an Erasmus term at a partner university may be available. You will develop sophisticated critical and theoretical tools needed for deep engagement with language, literature, and culture. The programme will appeal both to students wishing to develop deep familiarity with the cultures of one language area and those looking for a more broad exploration of the cultures of two language areas.
