English and French are two of the world’s major languages, and each has its own rich literary and cultural heritage. This joint honours degree offers the best of both worlds: the chance to explore literature in English while building French language skills and exploring Francophone cultures and societies. Core modules will build your language skills and allow you to engage with poetry, prose and drama. Our English and French departments are so large and diverse that we also offer a wide range of optional modules enabling you to explore the areas of English literature and Francophone culture that interest you. You’ll also spend a year abroad to gain first-hand experience of a Francophone society. You could study children’s literature, creative writing or medieval English romance, as well as French philosophy or African and Caribbean culture in French. You could also pick up practical skills such as translating or interpreting.
