The French programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is is designed to enable students who have taken a first degree in French to specialise in an aspect of French or Francophone literature or culture, while acquiring core skills in theories and methods of study.
We specialise in the language, literatures and cultures of France and the many countries around the world in which French is spoken. Language, to us, is inseparable from culture. As such, we encourage you to think broadly and explore the implications of language in a wider perspective.
Join our community and undertake two research assignments, and a 15,000 word dissertation, under the guidance of an experienced and well-published supervisor.
