French Studies is the largest section of the Department of Modern Languages. In total, we have around 600 students enrolled on our courses. We have ten members of the lecturing staff (including two professors), three language tutors, three teaching fellows and four native-speaker colloquial assistants.
Within French Studies, staff have diverse research interests and this means we are able to offer a very broad syllabus. One of the great advantages of a degree in French Studies is that you can sample a range of subject areas and disciplines all within your degree programme: film studies, literature, politics, history, translation studies, cultural studies, sociology, and even a dash of economics find their way into our modules at various points. Our students have the opportunity to study the history, politics and culture of France, then to apply that knowledge in order to consider the role of French culture and politics in Europe and internationally. If they wish, students can study French in a more global context through a range of Francophone options focusing on Africa, Canada and the Caribbean.
