Modern Languages

Students choosing the Modern Languages Degree will be combining two (or more) languages in conjunction with courses in linguistics and comparative literature. This allows students to gain a broader understanding of different cultures, the literature of their chosen area and the structure and functioning of languages through linguistics. The focus primarily revolves around language learning; however some students also discover an entirely new interest in literature or linguistics.
