Course Description

Our BA Latin and French Joint Honours course will enable you to develop your linguistic skills while learning about the literature and culture of both societies.

Both languages can be learned either as a beginner or from A-level standard, but at least one language must be studied from A-level standard. Once you've reached the appropriate level, your learning will allow you to study literary and historical texts in their original language.

Language study offers much more than just language fluency. You'll explore diverse aspects of the culture, society, history, politics and literature of the countries in which the languages are - or were - spoken, helping you to develop intercultural awareness and communication skills - both highly valued by employers.

You'll benefit from excellent teaching, student support and cutting-edge study facilities, as well as from the vibrancy and cultural diversity of Manchester itself, Western Europe's most multilingual city.

With placement options available at partner universities and in professional environments in several French-speaking countries, a compulsory third year abroad gives our undergraduate students unforgettable and invaluable personal and professional experience. Where possible, this includes enrolment on classical courses at an overseas university.
