As we move towards a global future, foreign languages and intercultural communicative skills become increasingly important. As well as developing spoken and written language skills, our BA programmes aim to get students ready for an international workplace.
Our single honours, or single language, degrees comprise both language study, and study of a wide range of options in literature, linguistics, modern history and politics, medieval history and culture, film studies, and other aspects of European culture. Your first year will introduce you to different disciplines and areas of study, and from your second year onwards, you will be able to start specialising in your own interests.
Combined degrees explained
Our combined degrees allow you to study a modern language together with another discipline at other UCL department (e.g., English, History, History of Art, Jewish Studies, Management Studies, Latin or Philosophy). Degrees that are 'and' another discipline are joint honours degees and degrees that are 'with' another discipline are major/minor degrees. They are all four-year degrees where you spend your Third Year abroad in a country where your target language is spoken.
