Modern Languages and Cultures

We provide a focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in Modern Languages and Cultures.


Our Masters in Modern Languages and Cultures provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research.


Our research activities are broadly organised around four research groups in addition to the Research Institute of Latin American Studies. The groups are engaged in interdisciplinary work, taking in literary, visual and historical sources, and collaborating across the language areas:

  • French Studies
  • German Studies
  • Hispanic Studies
  • Italian Studies
  • Latin American Studies
