French at Leeds allows you to become fluent in a major world language while gaining an insight into the literature, cinema, history and politics of the Francophone world. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to key aspects of Francophone culture. You’ll then choose from an impressive range of optional modules on topics as diverse as medieval romances, the French Revolution, postcolonial cinema and Francophone Africa. Sociology allows you to study the ways in which societies and institutions are structured and organised, as well as the effects they have on human behaviour. Core modules introduce you to key theories and approaches in sociology and how they apply to today’s society. You then develop this knowledge in optional modules allowing you to explore important and often controversial issues such as drug policy, crime, the sex trade, family dynamics, disability rights and protest movements.
