Learn two languages and deepen your understanding of the modern world by exploring the history and culture of the nations that speak them. If you’ve never studied either of the languages before, this degree will allow you to learn Arabic and Russian from beginner level. Arabic is one of the world’s major languages, and you’ll build your proficiency alongside an understanding of the cultural, religious and historical contexts that have shaped the region. Russia boasts a fascinating cultural and political history, and Russian is an important language for science and technology. Core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in both languages while you study topics that suit your interests. In this five-year course you’ll have the opportunity to spend two years abroad, spending a year in an Arabic speaking country and a year in Russia, which will provide you with invaluable first-hand experience.
