University of Leeds has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This degree will allow you to become proficient in French, as well as giving you the chance to explore some of the most important texts of the western tradition through the study of Classical Literature.
Core modules in French will allow you to become fluent in a major world language and introduce you to key aspects of the literature, cinema, history, culture and politics of the Francophone world. Through Classical Literature modules you’ll encounter writers such as Homer, Virgil, Aeschylus, Apuleius, Aristotle and Ovid, all read in English translation, offering a window onto Ancient Greek and Roman civilization.
By combining these two subjects, you’ll explore the living legacy of Classical Literature and discover how French culture resonates with stories and myths from the ancient world. You’ll also be able to choose from an impressive range of optional modules on topics as diverse as ancient theatre, ancient history, medieval romances, the French Revolution, and postcolonial cinema.
