Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world. The Single Honours French course at Bristol allows you to achieve a high level of fluency and accuracy in modern spoken and written French. It also allows you to study many original aspects of the society, literature, culture and linguistic history of French-speaking countries. You will develop a thorough understanding of the rich diversity of culture in France and elsewhere in the French-speaking world. As well as studying the literature and culture of France itself, from the Middle Ages through to the 21st century, you will cover the literatures and cultures of the Francophone world of North Africa and other former French colonies. We offer popular options on French cinema as part of a broader specialism in the relationship between literary, visual and musical cultures.
