One of the objectives of the programme is to train globally aware citizens of the future. As part of this, all students are required to study a language in year one of the programme, and are encouraged to continue to pursue language study right through the programme. The degree allows students to major in French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
The Modern Language Centre
For students not intending to major in a language, the College's Modern Language Centre offers a wide range of modules in various languages and for various abilities. Students are placed into sets according to ability when they arrive.
Students can continue to study language modules from the Modern Language Centre throughout the three years of their programme.
In 2011-12 the Centre is offering modules in Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Linguistics, Mandarin, Panjabi, Russian, Spanish and Urdu.*
Students can major in French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. The language majors include language training classes, as well as modules in the literatures and cultures of the target languages, and a period spent abroad at partner institutions.
*Note: Not all modules run every year, depending on demand. See the Modern Language Centre webpages for more information.
