This degree combines music with the study of French, which is spoken by hundreds of millions of people around the world. The course offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and a wide range of options that will allow you to pursue your own interests. Music offers a broad range of units in musicology, composition and performance across diverse styles and genres. These are complemented by weekly concerts, regular masterclasses and performances in the department, and opportunities to get involved in the dynamic music scene in the city of Bristol. The department is exceptionally friendly and welcoming, and staff run ensembles and perform with students. You will follow a structured language course in French, as well as explore the richness of French and Francophone history and culture, choosing from a range of units in literature, film, history, thought, politics, linguistics and visual culture. You will spend your third year abroad in a French-speaking country, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge.

Teaching is delivered through lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, and one-to-one project supervision. Assessments may include presentations, essays, commentaries, exams, collaborative projects, debates, podcasts, video essays, and dissertations. Our course will ensure you practise a range of skills, which will make you attractive to future employers in the globalised workplace and in the sector of your choice. French can be studied from beginner’s level and post-A level (or equivalent). All modern languages students have access to our state-of-the-art Multimedia Centre. You can also access extracurricular activities such as talks by visiting speakers, societies, language cafés, student newspapers, and talent shows.
