Course summary

In this varied and challenging degree, you’ll learn two languages and deepen your understanding of the modern world by exploring the history and culture of the nations that speak them. 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. You’ll have the opportunity to spend two years abroad, studying for a year in a Russian-speaking country and another year in an Arabic-speaking country, gaining first-hand experience. Core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in both Arabic and Russian while you study topics that suit your interests. If you’ve never studied Arabic before, this degree will allow you to learn it from beginner level. If you have A-level Russian or equivalent, this degree will build on your knowledge and skills. This course is a five-year degree.
