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.
