French and Francophone Cultural Studies MA
The MA is a taught Masters programme which explores aspects of French and Francophone cultures and histories through interdisciplinary analysis. It provides students with the tools for understanding the French and Francophone world not as distinct entities but as a single space constituted by multiple encounters. Specifically, students will explore questions of culture and identity and colonial and postcolonial relations within the transnational context of the French and Francophone worlds. The MA provides a firm basis for a variety of careers, or alternatively can be a spring-board for students wishing to undertake a higher research degree in the Department of French at Leeds.
