Subject

Modern middle eastern studies

If you are a good linguist and want to achieve a high level of proficiency in several languages, our flagship multi-language programme will be ideal for you. This is a 100% Single Honours programme and cannot be studied on a 75, 50, or 25% basis; if you would like to focus on one or two of our languages, please see the individual entries for those languages.
Students following Modern Languages (Triple Subject) study at least two languages from advanced level, plus a third language from beginners’ or advanced level. You have the option to begin a new beginners’ language
in second and final year.
In this programme, you may study French from A level; German, Spanish and Italian can be taken from beginners’ or A level; and Catalan, Basque, Chinese and Portuguese can be taken from beginners’ level. You will learn to speak, listen, read, write, translate and interpret to a high level in your chosen languages. There is an emphasis on languages in the context of contemporary culture and society and on their social and professional relevance. In each year of your studies, you will take six language modules (two per language), and choose two optional modules from different language areas.
The programme includes a compulsory year abroad split between at least two of your languages. You may spend the time abroad at a university, as an assistant in a school, or on a work placement. During the time abroad you will complete two essays or portfolios in the appropriate languages or attend an accredited Erasmus+ programme in your chosen country.
