Course Description

Overview

The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Kent encourages interdisciplinary study and students at the Paris Centre are offered a range of modules inspired by Paris and its unique cultural history.

This twelve-month programme allows students of literature the opportunity to augment their study with visits to some of places that have inspired many of the greatest authors of the last several hundred years. Students can also make use of the use of the research resources and archives that are only available in Paris to develop a dissertation over the summer term.

The programme can also be studied in Canterbury only or with the year shared between Canterbury and Paris.
