About

Combine studying a modern language (French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish) and its associated culture with English literature with this Language and English (French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish) (Part-time) programme at Birkbeck, University of London.

Overview

Gain a thorough grounding in different areas of English literature and engage imaginatively in the reading and analysis of literary texts from all periods, from the Anglo-Saxon to the present day. Develop a critical approach, so that you can put your own and others' work in context. You will also have the opportunity to study a number of cross-cultural modules that will allow you to explore specific themes across a variety of language-speaking areas.

This programme is also available for full-time evening study over three years, or four years including a year of study abroad.
