Modern Languages and LinguisticsPart of Humanities


Modern Languages and Linguistics at Southampton is ranked in the top 5 for research, according to the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). Our undergraduate students benefit from research-led teaching delivered by experts in the field.

You can choose single or combined degree programmes in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, European Studies and Linguistics. You can combine your language study with another subject. You can add a new language. And you can now apply for our exciting new undergraduate Masters (MLang).

Our unique seven-stage language learning programme is based on your level of language proficiency rather than your year of study, enabling you to make rapid progress in your chosen language. You will have a broad range of options to choose from in your second and final year, and a year abroad in your third year.


Undergraduate courses

Our courses include the option to study modern languages as a single subject or in combination with a variety of other subjects.

My degree programme has opened plenty of fantastic opportunities I never thought of before. Gaining linguistics abilities, a trip to Mexico, taking up Italian, writing for the students' magazine, meeting amazing people from varied backgrounds... I even tried ballet! It's been a priceless experience.
