The Department of French offers the possibility of study across the whole range of French and Francophone language and literature from the Middle Ages to the present day, as well as modules in French history, contemporary French institutions, film, politics and philosophy. The Department of Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies is active in all fields of Peninsular language, literature and cultural history from the earliest times to the present day. Beginning with our first-year compulsory module, Global Iberias, you will explore an unrivalled range of topics covering literature, history, film, music and visual arts from the Hispanic and Lusophone worlds. The core language modules help students refine and deepen the linguistic knowledge essential to all fields of study, and enable you to graduate with near native fluency. The year abroad is normally split between French and Spanish-speaking countries.
Many students remain to pursue graduate degrees whilst others go on to take further training in law, finance or the media. A wealth of opportunities are open to French graduates and King’s has an excellent record for employment after graduation. The highly desirable combination of language skills, cultural literacy and critical thinking means that French graduates from King’s are in strong demand in today’s job market.
