French and Philosophy

A degree in French and Philosophy enables you to develop your understanding of French language, culture, and society, while learning about philosophical issues that have challenged thinkers for centuries.

On this course you can either take an equal number of modules from each subject or you can decide to study more modules in French or in Philosophy.

The course focuses on developing your oral and written fluency in French to a high standard. You'll also study French society and culture from the medieval period to the present day. Options include film studies, bande dessinée, social exclusion, modern French thought, and the visual arts. You'll spend your third year abroad, as a language assistant in a school, studying at a university, or on a work placement.

The Philosophy department offers an exciting range of modules taught by researchers who are experts in their fields.  You can develop your understanding of the key areas of philosophy such as ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of language, theory of knowledge, metaphysics, and logic. We also have modules on major figures in the history of philosophy, such as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes,  Kant, and Hegel.

The Philosophy side of the degree is highly flexible, with no required modules. Dual students have the choice of exactly the same modules as single Philosophy students.  In French, you supplement core modules in language and culture with choices from a wide range of optional subjects to complete your programme of study.
