The Modern Languages, Literature and Culture (Narratives of Conflict - French) programme from Maynooth University introduces students to academic research, new ideas and theoretical approaches. It aims to equip students with academic, analytical, creative, reflective and presentation skills in order to foster interest and involvement in the field of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with specific emphasis on narratives of conflict. It also aims to enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts of European languages, literatures, cultures and societies, in particular with regard to France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain and Latin American countries.
