The taught MA in French is aimed at graduates with a primary honours degree in French, with a minimum of 2.2 or equivalent, who have spent a year in France, or who have equivalent expertise in French language.  It is designed for graduates of French who wish to take their study of French language, literature and culture to a deeper level and to enhance their language skills.  A significant proportion of the course is delivered and assessed through French.  Core teaching involves modules on writing and presentation skills in French, practical translation and research methodology.  The course is designed around the theme of writing and exile, a topic that corresponds to departmental research expertise in the modern and early modern periods.  There are elective modules (taught through English) in women's writing, translation studies and conflict studies.  The minor thesis (15,000-20,000 words) involves independent research and collaboration with a supervisor on an agreed subject.

It is possible to study modules of particular interest without completing a Masters degree or to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma (Level 9) in French after completing 60 credits of taught modules.
