Degrees with a language

In addition to a number of Single Honours language degrees, there are lots of opportunities in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences to study a modern language as part of your degree alongside another subject. Your chosen language (or languages) will comprise either 50% or 25% of your studies and will be listed on your degree certificate.
