The French Studies and Geography Joint Honours degree programme gives you great freedom to pursue the areas which interest you most. You will study a range of modules from both subjects, giving you an excellent grounding for a wide range of careers. You will study alongside single honours students in both departments, in fact this joint honours programme is designed so that you will reach the same level of French as a single honours student. You will take the same amount of credits in total as your single honours classmates, however half your credits will be in Geography and half in French. The degree offers a broad range of French Studies modules, coupled with a mix of general and specific Geography modules.
The French Studies half of your programme is designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of the country’s language and culture, with an emphasis on small-group teaching and encouraging student participation. Staff have diverse research interests and this means we are also able to offer a very broad syllabus across a range of subject areas including: film studies, literature, politics, history, translation studies, cultural studies, sociology, and even economics.
The Geography half of your programme will address key issues of today and tomorrow, such as climate change, water and ecosystem pollution, energy security, global economic problems, population pressure and a rapidly urbanising world. All of these factors have an impact on our daily lives, making this a rewarding and fulfilling subject to study. Here at Birmingham we have one of the UK’s most exciting Geography departments, with a large number of staff with specialisms in human, physical and environmental geography.
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
