Each year you will take two course units in each subject.
Both the French and German elements are structured around core course units in spoken and written language. You will use film resources and computer programmes designed by the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures; with language laboratories, satellite television and internet available all day for personal study.
Elective course units in French introduce key areas such as history, linguistics, politics, literature, theories of communication, cinema and the visual arts. In German you can choose from course units in literature, thinking, history, art, film and current affairs.
Throughout the course, you will:
learn to converse and write confidently in French and German
analyse and critique French and German materials in a wide variety of media
engage with the rich and varied world-view represented through the French and German languages and understand their continuing role in world affairs.
All undergraduate degree courses at Royal Holloway are based on the course unit system. This system provides an effective and flexible approach to study, while ensuring that our degrees have a coherent and developmental structure. In the case of combined degree courses, this approach also makes it possible to change the balance of your subjects during your time at Royal Holloway.
The School's website gives detailed lists of the course units taken for each different degree.
