This course combines history of art with study of French. This combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to an increasingly globalised workplace. You will study a combination of language, art history and culture units, spending your third year abroad in a French-speaking environment, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural understanding. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment for our students as staff respond in their teaching to new developments. French is the first language of some 90 million speakers around the world. Alongside studying history of art, this course offers a broad range of French studies through the study of language, history, literature and culture, from medieval literature to French cinema. Specialists in French will encourage you to explore the relationship between literary and visual cultures.
