  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Our BA Latin and French joint honours course will enable you to develop your linguistic skills while learning about the literature and culture of both societies. Both languages can be learned either as a beginner or from A-level standard, but at least one language must be studied from A-level standard. Texts for literary and historical course units are studied in Latin, where appropriate. Language study offers much more than just language fluency. You'll explore diverse aspects of the culture, society, history, politics and literature of the countries in which the languages are - or were - spoken, helping you to develop intercultural awareness and communication skills - both highly valued by employers. You'll benefit from excellent teaching, student support and cutting-edge study facilities, as well as from the vibrancy and cultural diversity of Manchester itself, Western Europe's most multilingual city. With placement options available at partner universities and in professional environments in several French-speaking countries, a compulsory third year abroad gives our undergraduate students unforgettable and invaluable personal and professional experience. Where possible, this includes enrolment on classical courses at an overseas university. **Aims** We aim to: - Develop and encourage your interest in the languages, literature and culture of the classical world by providing a broadly based and challenging curriculum including course units that are innovative and stimulating, informed by the research expertise of the teaching staff, and examined by a range of methods of assessment; - Offer an opportunity to study the language, literature and culture of both societies; - Advise and suggest course units which best exploit the interactions between the subjects of Latin and French; - Enable you to read an ever-growing range of ancient authors in the original, with accuracy, fluency and enjoyment; - Provide you with progressive language courses in Latin, starting from elementary, intermediate or advanced level, consolidating any existing knowledge of the language(s) and developing reading knowledge and some active competence and other language-based and language-related skills; - Train you in the methods, techniques and approaches necessary for the critical study of Latin literature, based on extensive reading of classical texts, studied both in the original language(s) and in translation; - Help you to work independently and to organise your own schedules of personal study; - Produce graduates with the transferable cognitive skills necessary to equip them for employment, postgraduate study, or further training.
