Each year you will take two course units in each subject.
The French element is structured around core course units in spoken and written language. You will use film resources and computer programmes designed by the School, 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.
For Latin you will read classical texts in the original and choose from other course units including Greek, ancient philosophy, ancient history and classical archaeology as well as Latin and Greek literature in translation.
Throughout the course, you will:
learn to converse and write confidently in French
analyse and critique French materials in a wide variety of media
understand and analyse large sections of a range of authors in the original Latin
acquire interpretative and analytical skills in dealing with a variety of primary and secondary literary, philosophical, archaeological and documentary source material.
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 websites of the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures and the Department of Classics and Philosophy give detailed lists of the course units taken for each different degree.
