Course Summary

Our internationally recognised excellent research in French Studies ranges from the Renaissance to the contemporary period, focusing on the 18th century and after, with the preponderance in the 20th and 21st centuries. Recent and on-going PhDs in French Studies span a broad range of periods and topics, and we welcome enquiries and proposals relating both to discrete specialisms and to interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary work.

A PhD is awarded for the outcomes of intensive, independent study that demonstrates an original and significant contribution to knowledge in your chosen subject. You will be assessed at the end of the programme by a thesis of 80,000 words which will need to be deemed suitable for publication, in whole or in part in a learned journal or equivalent by your examiners. You will need to defend your thesis and demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of your subject at a viva voce (oral examination) before a panel of expert examiners. Your degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University.
