Language and/with Politics (French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish)

Combine studying a modern language and its associated culture with a study of politics. This programme allows you to reach a high level of competence in a modern language and to acquire advanced knowledge of a range of cultural topics whilst also developing an understanding of the nature of politics and government in contemporary societies. You will compare and contrast the institutions and practices of government in different societies and analyse different theories of politics and government. If you choose French, German, Italian, Japanese, or Spanish, you can start this programme at any language level from complete beginner to native speaker proficiency. However if your chosen language is Portuguese you must have at least post-A Level/B2 (CEFR) or equivalent competence. 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.
