About this course

This integrated master's in French, including a year abroad, gives you complete proficiency in this major international language. Through a wide range of study modules, you’ll develop a deep understanding of the cultures, societies, histories and linguistics of French-speaking nations worldwide.

What you learn will prepare you for work across the world. French is native to 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.

As well as studying French, you can choose from modules such as Linguistics, Translation and Globalisation.

There's also a module in year 2 that prepares you for the following year abroad. You'll spend your year abroad on a study placement with one of our partner universities in a French-speaking country.

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.
