Be prepared for responsibility and the rewards and problems that come with responsibility. It is very important to be comfortable making decisions and living with them. While it is impossible to be right all of the time the majority of decisions you make have to be correct.

Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Summary... header image

This B.A. fosters competence in French, German or Spanish alongside an enriched understanding of English. Fluency of expression is a key priority in the world of work, and the aim of this programme is to increase linguistic versatility in every respect. It is delivered over four years through three strands of subject matter including composition skills, literary studies, and language learning and teaching. Graduates will be proficient communicators in their chosen European language and highly adept at text analysis and production in English.

English modules include literature, composition, and linguistics, as well as cultural studies, cinema, and the teaching of English as a second language. French, German, and Spanish modules develop spoken competence, written accuracy, and intercultural understanding through translation and literary analysis.

This four-year honours programme involves three years of study in the DIT and one year abroad at a partner institution in the country of the foreign language. Alternatively, qualified students in Year Three may undertake an English language teaching assistantship in France, Germany, or Spain.


Lecturers, current students and graduates explain what the Languages school has to offer and the importance of languages in a competitive and global environment.
