Course content

Studying our master's in French Literature and Culture means joining a lively and welcoming French department and dipping into London's unparalleled cultural and intellectual life, including its collections of French art and its French film festival plus other connected events. The course offers research methodology and critical theory as a core component plus a wide choice of options ranging from Medieval Occitan to Contemporary French Women's Writing.

The programme is centred around a core module in literary and critical theory. Optional modules reflect the research interests of staff and range from the Middle Ages to the present day (including modern French thought and Francophone literature), giving the programme a unique depth and range. Students also have the opportunity to take our innovative modules in advanced French language studies (subject to availability) as well as modules from other programmes.
