Months of entry
The MA Languages and Cultures is a research-focused programme which enables students to pursue specialist Masters-level research into the cultures associated with the following language areas: East Asian; French; German; Italian; Middle Eastern; Russian and Eastern European; Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American. `Cultures' is understood in the broadest sense: students may wish to specialize in historical, literary, religious, or artistic aspects of relevant countries from the pre-modern period to the present day. Applicants may choose to specialize in any area covered by the unparalleled breadth of research expertise available among academic staff within the School of Language, Linguistics and Cultures. The programme provides intensive training in research, and in related high-level transferable skills, in preparation for PhD studies at research universities. It is also aimed at students who will be heavily involved in research-based activities outside academia (e.g. as analysts in the commercial and finance industry, or as policy analysts in government departments or city councils).
