About the School
The Division of Literature and Languages is an integrated unit with an internationally renowned research profile and a reputation for high-quality teaching, both in its unique combination of subjects and an interdisciplinary context.
The Division offers BA programmes in French, Spanish, Religion and Global Cinema and Culture. Integrated Honours degree programmes are available with subjects in Arts and Humanities, Management, and Human Sciences, including Education, with a BA in Professional Education (Primary) with specialism in Modern Languages. The Division supports the Languages Baccalaureate.
All students on programmes involving French and/or Spanish have the opportunity to spend time abroad as part of their degree, whether as an English Language Assistant through the British Council's assistantship scheme or on a language-specific period of study abroad. Students on all degree programmes may also be interested in participating in one of the University's non-language-specific exchange programmes. We also offer double degrees (BA in International Management Studies and Intercultural Studies) which are organised with the Ecole de Management in Strasbourg and the University of Passau.
Postgraduate taught courses include our MLitt in Film Studies; an MRes (Masters in Research) in the Humanities which encompasses a range of pathways; a taught MRes in Translation Studies; and an MSc in Translation Studies with TESOL. PhD research is offered in a variety of fields in which the Division is a centre of excellence, including Critical Religion, Cultural Theory, Francophone and Hispanophone Visual Cultures especially Cinema Studies, Latin American Studies, Post-Colonialism, and Queer Studies. We welcome enquiries from prospective Masters or PhD students interested in any of these areas.
