French is an important world language with a rich cultural and historical background. This joint honours degree will allow you to develop your written and spoken language skills alongside your understanding of British, European and world history. Core modules will allow you to refine your language skills and introduce you to historiography. We also offer a fantastic variety of optional modules, giving you the chance to explore Francophone literature, politics and philosophy alongside historical topics from the fall of Rome to the 20th century. You could take a module on Francophone Africa while studying the process of decolonisation. Or you could take a more diverse approach, trying translation or interpreting while exploring modern Japan or 20th century Africa. You’ll explore two different disciplines and gain a wide range of skills.
