About BA Czech and Russian

Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world.

The University of Bristol is one of the country's leading centres for the study of modern languages and cultures. 

Our Joint Honours degree in Czech and Russian enables you to explore two complementary but contrasting European cultures. Both departments enjoy a strong reputation for teaching and research.

Russia continues to assert itself as an independent, powerful political and economic force, while the Czech Republic has established itself as a centre for banking, finance, media, diplomacy and tourism.

You will take units in both languages in year one and choose from a range of options in years two and four combining cultural, historical and sociological approaches. In language classes you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills, using a range of textbooks, media and internet resources.

You will divide your third year between the Czech Republic and a Russian-speaking environment, either at a university or on a work placement.
