About this course

In this integrated master's, you'll become fluent in a major international language, deepen your understanding of linguistics and spend a year in a French-speaking country. You’ll develop a deep understanding of the cultures and histories of French-speaking nations worldwide.

What you learn will prepare you for work across the world. French is native to France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and the French Caribbean, and it’s an official language in much of Africa and Asia.

You’ll start at a level that matches your ability in spoken and written French, which helps ensure rapid progress. You’ll also have excellent resources to support you. The Centre for Language Study at Southampton has everything you need.

A module in year 2 prepares you for the following year abroad. You can spend your year abroad in countries such as:

  • France

  • Switzerland

  • Belgium

  • Canada

  • Guadeloupe

  • Martinique

  • La Réunion

We have partner universities in the Erasmus exchange programme across France and Switzerland.

You’ll write a final year dissertation with guidance from a supervisor.
