BA French and Contemporary Chinese Studies
In French, in addition to core modules in the French language, you take optional modules in reading a variety of French texts (the novel, poetry, film, for example), contemporary French politics, economics and society, French history or French linguistics. In Chinese you begin a structured course in Mandarin Chinese (that leads you from beginners' stage to final degree level) and take optional modules in Chinese culture and institutions.
You consolidate your language studies and study a choice of modules offering further broad coverage of both subjects.
This year is spent abroad. For French, you can follow a programme of studies in a higher education institution, work as an assistant in a school, or take up a work placement in France or a Francophone country. For Contemporary Chinese Studies, you have the opportunity to learn about Mandarin and Chinese culture by spending a semester at our campus in Ningbo.
In both fields, you will perfect your command of both languages and their uses in increasingly sophisticated contexts, and study optional modules covering a wide range of topics in the fields of Chinese and French literature, history, society and linguistics.
