French and Italian are both major European languages and have had huge influence within Europe and beyond. If you have an A-level in each language, this joint honours degree allows you to become fluent in each while exploring different aspects of Francophone and Italian culture. You’ll develop your language skills through core modules. Because our School of Languages, Cultures and Societies is so large and diverse, we also offer an impressive range of optional modules exploring the cultural, political and historical contexts in which the languages are spoken. You’ll develop skills of interpretation and analysis by engaging with French and Italian culture and society through time, from the Middle Ages to the present, and across media from literature to cinema. You could cover antiracism movements in post-war France, Dante, linguistic varieties and contemporary culture in Italy. You could even try a completely new language or study translation methodology.
