The School of Modern Languages offers the following Master's programmes, which can be taken either full-time (one year) or part-time (two years):
The School of Modern Languages welcomes applications for postgraduate degrees by research. In addition to research topics focusing on single language areas, we actively encourage interdisciplinary research that cuts across languages or other intellectual disciplines in the Faculty of Arts. Joint supervision may be provided.
See our school research clusters for more information on how our research activity is focused within Modern Languages.
You will also benefit from the Graduate School of Arts and Humanities' skills training programme, which allows you to extend your range of academic and professional skills. You may also be given the chance at an appropriate stage to teach undergraduates, and you will be offered training for this purpose, leading to formal accreditation.
We are one of a very few institutions to offer postgraduate research students who are non-native English speakers the option of writing their dissertation in their native language.
Graduates of the school include Sue Lawley OBE, television and radio presenter; Julia Donaldson (pictured), Children's Laureate 2011-13; Mary Chapman, Chief Executive, Chartered Management Institute.
