English with French

Combine your love of reading and English literature with the study of French, and get an insight into how languages and cultures interact. Experience the diversity of English literature and explore how writers use language to express their ideas. Gain the confidence to read, think and write critically and creatively, and add a widely spoken foreign language to your skill set. You will enhance your employability with this cross-disciplinary course, preparing you for a variety of career paths. Boost your career prospects by working with a publishing house, literary agent, arts organisation or magazine on our work-based learning module or extra-curricular internships. Write and be published as part of INK, the English and Creative Writing student-run magazine, and be part of the wider languages community at the University with various activities including field trips to Nice or Paris as part of your French pathway, or learn another language in the evenings. * Choose from a wide variety of specialist modules, including period and cultural studies, and creative writing. You’ll be taking two thirds of your modules in English and one third in French. The focus of your French modules will be on written and oral language skills as well as a deeper understanding of French culture. This will provide a background for comparisons as you study English literature in its cultural context. * Receive free set texts for all core modules throughout the three years. * Benefit from assessment through coursework, with no written exams. * Boost your career prospects by working with a publishing house, literary agent, arts organisation or magazine on our work-based learning module or extra-curricular internships. * Make use of our open-door policy and talk to your lecturers in a friendly and supportive learning environment. * Learn from internationally recognised research-active staff, including published creative writers. * Experience other cultures by studying or working abroad in either Europe or the US. * Write and be published as part of INK, the English and Creative Writing student-run magazine. * Access resources at any time with the University library, open 24 hours 365 days a year, offering a vast range of electronic and print materials, including a rare books collection. * Be part of the wider languages community at the University with various activities including field trips to Nice or Paris as part of your French pathway, or learn another language in the evenings (including Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin and German). * Don’t get lost in translation - practise your language skills at the Languages Cafe; an informal setting to chat and socialise with native speakers from across the University. * Make the most of a rich cultural life with Plymouth University’s Peninsula Arts programme and the University’s links with local arts organisations, like the Theatre Royal. * To complement your formal learning we offer regular PALS sessions that provide the opportunity for you to learn with and from your peers.
