French at Aberdeen has a long-standing reputation for teaching and research, exploring topics from the Middle Ages to the present day and the Caribbean to North Africa. You can study our undergraduate language courses at all levels, adding courses covering film, contemporary civilization, history and culture. Our flexible courses also invite you to combine French studies with almost any other subject, so you can tailor your degree to suit your own particular needs and interests.
You will add to your growing language skills with courses in film, contemporary civilization and culture, Francophone and post-colonial studies, philosophy, history, sociology, linguistics, theatre, and most genres and periods of literature from the middle ages to the present day. You will be taught by staff recognised internationally for their research, from Medieval Studies to the politics of culture and difference in contemporary France. Single Honours in French Studies and most Joint Honours with French are available either as Mode A degrees (5 years) including a full academic year spent in a French-speaking country, or as Mode B degrees (4 years) including half a year spent in a French-speaking country.
For both Mode A and Mode B, the first and second year is identical, so you do not need to decide between Mode A and Mode B until the December of the second year. We strongly recommend that you apply for the Mode A option. In Aberdeen, you will thrive in our friendly and dynamic international community, on our beautiful medieval campus with great facilities for learning, sports and leisure and the many opportunities to develop extra skills and interests and to gain the competitive advantage for whichever career path you choose.
