Master one European language and gain the skills to analyse the social, political and economic changes affecting Europe and the world.

This degree enables you to combine a European language with the study of the politics of the societies in which your chosen language is spoken.

In the course, the language and politics strands carry equal weighting. You will gain a strong competence in both your chosen language and in relevant issues of world politics.

The first and second years are about key political concepts and the culture and society of your target language. You will be able to choose from some optional units, enabling you to focus on areas of most relevance to you.

During the third year, you will spend a year abroad. The year abroad assessment contributes towards your final degree classification.

In the final year, you will write a year-long dissertation supervised by an academic member of staff. There are several optional units you can choose allowing you to focus on areas that you are most interested in and excited by.
