Joint-honours Latin with French is based on the study of the language, literature and culture of both societies. Each language is studied in all three years: where appropriate, texts for literary and historical course units are read in the original language. Latin may be taken by complete beginners (course 2) as well as by post A-level students (course 1). This degree programme includes a year spent in France: where possible, this includes enrolment on classical courses at a French University. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials and virtual seminars via the web. Aims The course aims to: develop and encourage students' interest in the languages, literature and culture of the classical world, by providing a broadly based and challenging curriculum including course-units that are innovative and stimulating, informed by the research expertise of the teaching staff, and examined by a range of methods of assessment; an opportunity to study the language, literature and culture of both societies; advise and suggest course units which best exploit the interactions between the subjects of Latin and French; enable students to read an ever-growing range of ancient authors in the original, with accuracy, fluency and enjoyment; provide students with progressive language courses in Latin, starting from elementary, intermediate or advanced level, consolidating any existing knowledge of the language(s) and developing particularly reading knowledge but also some active competence and other language-based and language-related skills; train students in the methods, techniques and approaches necessary for the critical study of Latin literature, based on extensive reading of classical texts, studied both in the original language(s) and in translation; help students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study; produce graduates with the transferable cognitive skills necessary to equip them for employment, postgraduate study, or further training. Special features Third year spent abroad. We offer French to both beginners' or post-A-level applicants.
