French is one of the key international languages and studying French opens up the rich and varied world of francophone culture. From literature to the cinema, from haute couture to haute cuisine, from engineering to science, the influence of France extends across the whole globe.
As a student of French at Strathclyde, you will have the chance to become a fluent linguist, engaging with another culture through the medium of its language. You may also choose to work abroad during, and perhaps after, your course. Languages are taught in a friendly atmosphere, in which every student receives the personal attention they need.
We place an emphasis on high-level professional skills, such as making presentations, writing reports, interpreting and translating into English, all of which will help prepare you for a wide range of careers.
French can also be studied within the BA (Honours) in International Business and Modern Languages offered by the Strathclyde Business School
