What will I learn?

This distinctive and highly flexible programme provides great scope for you to customise your degree according to your interests. With a broad focus on cultural studies and sociolinguistics, the programme allows you to explore topics ranging from film to history, from gender to translation studies. Central to the degree is the study of two languages, with the possibility of changing language after the first year.

Your learning

This programme and the first-year core module are run by the Language and Culture BA Programme Tutor. Languages are taught intensively, and you will be trained in speaking, reading, writing and translating in your target languages. Students on this programme develop their skills in both languages and interdisciplinary and cultural studies.


Language modules are normally assessed by coursework and written and oral examinations. Other modules are normally assessed through a combination of written coursework and examinations.


There are many career opportunities for UCL's modern language graduates. We seek to embed within our teaching the acquisition of transferable skills as well as linguistic and cultural knowledge.

Popular career paths for modern language graduates include the financial sector, the civil service, journalism, accountancy, publishing, education, advertising, the media and law. Some graduates pursue careers that make special use of their language skills, including translating, interpreting and teaching, while others continue with graduate training and research.
