BA Modern Languages (French) and Philosophy

University of Southampton

With this French and Philosophy degree, you’ll become fluent in a major international language and spend a year in a French-speaking country. You'll also study philosophy, which will deepen your ability to analyse and communicate.

What you learn will prepare you for work across the world. French is native to France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and the French Caribbean, and it’s an official language in much of Africa and Asia.

You’ll start at a level that matches your ability in spoken and written French, which helps ensure rapid progress.

You’ll also have resources to support you, including the Centre for Language Study which offers things like language and academic advising.

A module in year 2 prepares you for the following year abroad, which you'll spend in either a work placement, a British Council placement or at one of Southampton’s partner universities.

Your course lead is Dr Michael Kranert.

His research interests range from comparative discourse analysis to language ideologies, with a particular focus on English and German speaking countries.
