Language is fundamental to our thoughts, 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. This four-year course is intended for high-achievers with an A-level grade B in a major language. The undergraduate and postgraduate studies are integrated into one course, graduating with an Integrated Masters in Modern Languages in four years, rather than five if the courses are taken separately. Students will specialise in at least two modern languages, studying one to Essex’s highest Mastery level. Language study is combined from the third year with translation and subtitling skills. In the first and second years, students will study practical language modules to develop their language skills. French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish can be studied to Mastery level, with Mandarin Chinese taken as an option. The third year is spent studying abroad with modules taken in language and translation. Each student will carry out research relating to translation and subtitling for their year abroad project, supported by their supervisor.
