Language is fundamental to our thought, our relationships, and our civilisations. Through language we transmit knowledge, from inviting someone for coffee, to promoting the latest scientific theory, to settling global political disputes. On this BA Modern Languages course, students can study up to three languages choosing between French, German, Italian and Spanish from beginner or post-A level standard. Portuguese can be studied from a pre-A level standard. These languages can be studied alongside the language expert modules which cover a range of cultural and professional skills. Students can also explore a range of modules on global cultures, histories, and politics, so that you can really understand another country, beyond just being able to communicate in the native language. Study topics including: World cinema; Translation, interpreting and subtitling; Popular music; Visual history. Essex also offers a month-long summer course with fees paid for by Essex if the student starts a language from scratch via the intensive route.
