Introducing your degree
A degree in Modern Languages means that not only do you get to study in depth the language or languages of your choosing, but also spend a year abroad experiencing that culture and language first hand. Our Modern Languages degree course covers a broad range of exciting and translatable topics that examine the development and spread of modern languages. Graduates of our Modern Languages courses go on to teach, translate and continue into further study.
