French Studies at UCL
French is the language of many cultures in Europe. After the Norman Conquest it was the language of the rulers of England. Ever since, it has held pride of place as one of the most important modern foreign languages for English speakers. A significant proportion of the delegates to the United Nations express themselves in French. Closer to home, European integration, with its developing opportunities for employment, makes a thorough knowledge of the language, institutions and culture of France and francophone countries particularly urgent and rewarding. The literature and cinema which originate from the francophone countries of the American, African and Asian continents are among the most fascinating being created today.
