This distinctive four-year degree programme combines the study of either Spanish, French or Japanese honours language with international development studies, specialising in social analysis, development economics, geography or natural resources and environment of the developing world. You can begin your degree-level study if you have A level or GCSE in these languages. For Japanese or Spanish you can also start from beginners level.
The programme, jointly taught with the School of International Development, enables you to split your time between the study of your chosen language, related cultural studies and international development studies. It is designed to provide coherence and focus around core elements in relation to your main interests. Modules are careful sequenced, from a range of introductory modules in the first year, to greater specialisation, and sophistication of approach in subsequent years.
