Masters in Languages

The complex discipline of languages aims at preparing student to build a deep understanding of a culture based on its individual language and literature, using the spoken and written forms of expression. Gaining in-depth knowledge of a foreign language helps students understand and value cultural diversity, helps build connections between societies, and makes the world a smaller, more open place to live in.
Courses explore a wide range of fields including: literature, film, critical theory, philosophy, linguistics, politics and ethics, etc.
Students who want to learn a foreign language may find short-courses, summer courses as well as advanced undergraduate and postgraduate language programmes. They may choose to study a popular international language such as English, French, German or Spanish, to use in international professional contexts. Alternatively, they may learn a less-known foreign language, or an old language gaining a good entry into a specialised field of work such as translations, interpreting, business or archaeology. Examples include Chinese, Arabic, Latin, Sanskrit or ancient Greek.
Students of languages are able to speak, write, listen and read in one or more foreign languages at an advanced level. Speaking and learning a foreign language enhances creativity, memory and problem-solving skills.
Languages graduates can find jobs in many areas working as: translators, teachers, linguists, international relations consultant, historians, research and more.
