European and International Studies (French)

European and International Studies explores the key areas of contemporary European history, politics, economics and international relations, and combines these with the in-depth study of French language, society and culture. Taught in partnership between the Department of Politics and International Relations and the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, this course is informed by the outstanding research and international outlook of both departments. The politics element of the course provides an introduction to the working of international relations and the growth of Europe as a political entity. This includes research into areas such as the European Union and the European Parliament, security, international diplomacy, the use of military force, as well as European languages and cultures. The prominence of France and the French-speaking countries when it comes to literature, art, thought and culture makes the study of the French language highly rewarding and engaging. As a modern linguist, you will not only learn to speak and write fluently, you will also develop excellent communication and research skills and combine language proficiency with cross-cultural perspectives. As a part of Royal Holloway’s close-knit international community based in our beautiful historic campus, you will be within easy reach of London, France’s sixth biggest city’, with its wealth of French cultural resources. You will also have the exciting opportunity to spend a year working, teaching or studying in France or a French-speaking country, when you will immerse yourself in the language and culture and truly broaden your horizons. - Whether you are a beginner or advanced student when you start, by the time you graduate you will be fluent in French: confident in reading, understanding and analysing text and able to write with ease and accuracy. - Modern Languages research staff are engaged in research at the highest level internationally; we are in the top 10 of UK Modern Language departments for research quality and the top in London (Research Assessment Exercise 2014). - Ours is an active and engaged student community, and there are opportunities to take part in debating, Model United Nations and party political societies on campus - In Politics and International Relations we offer students research placement opportunities with our staff, gaining valuable experience of working at the forefront of political enquiry
