Course Summary

This MA helps you develop a deeper understanding of your chosen language(s) and associated culture(s). You’ll research the relationships between language, identity, culture and place and develop an ability to analyse and interpret an increasingly interconnected, multilingual and multicultural world.

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 literature, linguistics, history, visual and film studies, politics, migration, and postcolonial or gender studies, as appropriate to your interests.

The programme is ideal for students with a background in French and Francophone studies, Germanic studies (German and Dutch), Hispanic and Lusophone studies (Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese; Latin America), Luxembourgish studies, or Russian and Slavonic studies (Russian and Czech; the former USSR).
