Taught by the Department of Languages and Cultures, our approach enables you to acquire high-level language skills and a thorough understanding of French and Spanish cultures and societies within a global context. Lancaster University's French Studies and Spanish Studies (Hons) degree includes an international placement in year 3.


Key facts

You’ll begin Lancaster University's French Studies and Spanish Studies (Hons) degree with French and Spanish courses which both have a language-specific cultural component.  You will also study a minor subject of your choice, which may be another language.

Building on your language skills in Year 2, you will also study the culture, politics and history of France and Spain in more depth, as well as selecting courses which are international in scope and promote a comparative understanding of Europe and beyond.

Spending your third year abroad gives you the opportunity to greatly improve your language proficiency while deepening your intercultural sensitivity. You can study at a partner institution or conduct a work placement.  As a joint major student, you can spend your time in a French- or Spanish-speaking country, or split the year between the two.

In your fourth year, you will continue developing your core French and Spanish language skills. You will combine this with language-specific modules such as ‘Game of (Spanish) Thrones: Treachery, War and Exile in Spanish Poetry (13th-20th c.)’. You may also choose some comparative culture courses, such as ‘Writing in the Margins: Narrating Cross-cultural Experience’.
