This programme allows you to combine the study of a modern language and global politics to a high level. If you choose to study French, German, Italian, Japanese, or Spanish, you can start the programme at the level of language that suits you, whether you are a complete beginner or a native speaker of your chosen language. If you wish to study Portuguese you must have at least post-A Level/B2 (CEFR) or equivalent competence. As well as gaining competence in a language you will acquire advanced knowledge of a range of cultural topics, while also focusing on the nature of politics at the global level: international relations, political economy, and war and security studies. You will gain the skills necessary for political, sociological, historical and economic analysis in a learning environment that is supportive, radical and exciting. You will also have the opportunity to study a number of cross-cultural modules which will allow you to explore specific themes across a variety of language-speaking areas.
