    The French and Francophone Studies: Language, Culture and History MA aims to encourage innovative approaches to issues in the field, as well as to sharpen students' creative and critical responses.

    The programme provides a thorough understanding of key methods and issues in textual criticism, and of aspects of French and francophone culture, within a broadly interdisciplinary focus. The modules are designed to offer exciting critical engagement with topical issues currently being addressed in French and francophone studies, such as: text and theory, text and image, historiography, film history, trauma, creativity and post-colonial theory.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

    The programme offers two pathways: taught and research. Taught: one core module (30 credits), three optional modules (90 credits), and a dissertation (60 credits). Research: one core module (30 credits), two taught modules (60 credits), and a research dissertation (90 credits).

    A Postgraduate Diploma, one core module (30 credits), three optional modules (90 credits) full-time nine months or part-time two years, is offered.

    A Postgraduate Certificate, one core module (30 credits), one optional module (30 credits) full-time three months, part-time six months, is offered.

    Core module

    • Language, Culture and History. This core module permits research into two areas of major contemporary interest; for example, topics explored during the current year include the following:
    • Trauma
    • Memory
    • Visual Culture
    • Queer(y)ing Sexuality

    Optional modules

    Students take a choice of optional modules on topics such as the following:

    • Dead Things and Demolition Sites: Cultural, Visual and Historical Representations in France, 1598-1889
    • Advanced Translation into French
    • Advanced Translation into English
    • Gender, Race and Sexuality: New Readings in Francophone Literature and Visual Culture
    • The French New Wave

    Dissertation/report

    All students undertake an independent research project related to the broad area of French and Francophone Studies which culminates in a dissertation of 12,000 words for the taught pathway and 18,000 for research.

    Teaching and learning

    The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials. French-specific translation courses are assessed by take-home examinations. Other courses are mainly assessed by essays.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree involving specialisation in French from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applications from students who do not have formal qualifications in French, but who are competent in the language, will be considered.

    Several funding options may be possible for applicants to this programme, including: Arts & Humanities Faculty Awards, UCL Scholarships for UK/EU & Overseas Students and Rothschild Scholarship.
