French and Creative Studies
You can study French as a joint honours degree with Creative Studies (50% French and 50% Creative Studies). Please read the course description for both subjects.
The BA (Hons) in French will give you advanced skills in the French language, and a broad range of specialised and detailed insights into the culture, society and history that go with it. The course has language at the heart of it, with core modules developing the key oral, aural and written skills every year. These modules also foster cultural awareness, which you will need for your year abroad, and later on, for the world of work. Doing single honours will also allow you to follow a full range of options, which will equip you with extensive knowledge of the heritage and life of the modern French nation, and awareness of the wider Francophone world, at a level which will allow you to consider postgraduate study.
This innovative and unique degree allows you to pursue an interest in a variety of related subject areas such as Professional Writing, Film Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies, Journalism, Media, and New Media Studies. It aims to develop your critical and intellectual abilities as well as allowing you the opportunity to engage and explore many different areas of creative practice. This combination, a meeting of the critical and the creative, allows you to pursue interconnected themes and ideas within different creative and/or critical fields, or to follow through specific genre or creative practice interests, or to contrast and compare those areas across your degree program.

Studying Modern Languages and Cultures opens the door to a wide variety of careers. Many Bangor Modern Languages and Cultures graduates have, of course, gone into teaching and translating, but just as many have embarked upon successful careers in the civil service, business and commerce, industry and the media. The skills you learn whilst studying languages – cultural awareness, communication, accuracy, planning and logical analysis – are valued highly by employers from all sectors of the economy.
For Creative Studies:
Our graduates work in the film, theatre, media and creative industries, in teaching, in arts development, in film programming, film making and scheduling, and in other fields where their ability to engage critically and creatively with a range of artistic disciplines is seen to be of considerable importance. Several graduates each year go on to develop their work further with us through a period of postgraduate study, where once again the School uniquely offers a combination of critical and creative approaches to the study of film and film practice.
