The Combined Honours programme in Modern Languages and Arabic will give you an excellent grounding in two languages, Arabic and either French, German, Italian, Spanish or Russian, with your final degree title reflecting the two languages that you studied, eg BA French and Arabic. Within this Combined Honours degree you will divide your time equally between the two subject areas. On the Modern Languages side of the programme, alongside studying the language, you will cover cultural modules, exploring specialist topics such as cinema, history, literature, philosophy, and politics. The Arabic component of the degree is language based, and will provide you with a thorough understanding of the culture and literature of the Arab peoples. You will also study modules on Arab literature and on Islam and Arab history. In your second year, you will spend a year abroad in an Arabic-speaking country. Please note that Arabic can only be taken at a beginner level, which means that you must have an A Level or equivalent in your modern language choice. An intellectually stimulating degree that engages you imaginatively in the process of analysing and understanding language and culture, the BA Modern Languages and Arabic programme encourages you to become a global citizen. By the end of your degree, you will have acquired a diverse and transferable set of skills and intercultural awareness that are highly sought by employers.
