Modern Languages and Cultures
School of Histories, Languages and Cultures
Go beyond the 'tourist experience' with Modern Languages and Cultures at Liverpool and develop an understanding of the literary, historical, cinematic, political and linguistic context of a wide-ranging and unique set of world cultures in a department that is constantly innovating to offer new programmes and new teaching approaches. All our programmes offer a year abroad. This experience means you will gain a much greater knowledge and appreciation for your chosen language, as well as a set of professional and personal skills proven to enhance your employability.
Have a passion for languages? Our flagship Modern Languages (Triple Subject) degree allows you to study up to five languages during your degree, three of which can be studied from scratch.
Interested in one particular language area and culture? Our Single Honours degree programmes in French, German, and Hispanic Studies will give you a solid, in-depth and wide-ranging knowledge of that subject area.
Want to combine two language areas, or a language with another subject? Our Major/Minor and Joint degrees let you combine our languages in many flexible ways.
Want to explore Spain, Portugal and Latin America? Our programme in Hispanic Studies gives you the opportunity to study the diverse languages, cultures and societies of Spain, Portugal and Latin America – we teach Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Basque.
Interested in studying Film? Film studies can be taken as a joint degree programme with many other subjects, and specialist film modules are offered in each language area.
French BA (Hons)
What is great about languages is that you get a lot of time to work outside contact hours. That is a liberty that I never experienced at school. The teaching here is diverse, and there is a wide range of subject matter in the modules on offer. I had always presumed that studying languages would be similar to school - mostly grammar and vocabulary! But in my three years here I have studied literature, history, cinema and socio-linguistics, all linked in some way to France or the Francophone world.
