The key to understanding another society is mastering its language. From this starting point, you can examine a country’s history, its literature and culture; and by comparison you can learn more about our own society. The BA Modern Languages suite of programmes is designed for students who wish to specialise in the study of one, two or three languages. You’ll need to be highly motivated and able to demonstrate a real interest in, and flair for, languages.
Our five core languages are French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish, but we also offer Portuguese, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and English Language. You’ll be learning at one of the biggest, most prestigious centres for the study of modern languages in the UK, with teaching from experts in their field. It’s an exciting chance to develop skills that will equip you for a huge range of careers, both in this country and abroad. The wide range of posts recent graduates have secured include roles in journalism, law, publishing and teaching at every level.
The BA Modern Languages programme involves the study of one, two or three modern languages via one of our four pathways. The degree programme is four years in length, and you will spend your third year studying, teaching or working abroad before returning to Birmingham for your final year.
