What Will You Study

Lancaster’s combined four-year English Language and French Studies degree scheme is taught jointly by our Department of Linguistics and English Language and the Department of Languages and Cultures and includes a year spent studying abroad.

Your language studies are complemented by a wide range of options exploring French society, culture, history and politics. You’ll also take comparative courses that place this knowledge in a broader European context.

In your first year, you’ll follow courses such as English Language as well as French Studies (Intensive or Advanced), before moving on to second-year subjects including English Sounds and Structures and French Language: Oral Skills. Your third year abroad will make a major contribution to your command of the language, while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You’ll finish with final-year modules that include French Language: Written Skills and Contemporary Methods in English Language Studies.
