European Studies - French - University of Central Lancashire

In the global village, graduates increasingly require an understanding of intercultural communication, set against a context of intellectually challenging curricula. The BA (Hons) European Studies, with pathways in French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish, enables students to combine Language and Area Studies in a programme where intellectual development and an explicit employability focus are guiding principles. In each year of the course, students will combine the study of European Studies (European History and Culture, European integration and the relationship between the UK and the EU) with their chosen language pathway and related Area Studies. It is expected that students will normally spend a year abroad in a country where the studied target language is spoken, but this is not compulsory. The programme is delivered by specialist staff in both European Studies and Modern Languages, ensuring that students receive an optimal teaching and learning experience, while developing their transferable skills ready for the world of work.
