BA Politics, International Relations and Modern Languages (French)

Royal Holloway University of London

Politics, International Relations and Modern Languages explores the key areas of contemporary politics and international relations, and combines these with the in-depth study of French language, society and culture.

Taught in partnership between the Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy, and the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, this course is informed by the outstanding research and international outlook of both departments.

The politics element of the course provides an introduction to the working of international relations. This includes research into areas such as security, international diplomacy, and the use of military force, as well as European languages and cultures.
