Modern Languages, Communication and Cultures (Beginner Pathway) MA (Hons)

Reino Unido


¿Qué aprenderé?

The MA in Modern Languages, Communication & Cultures allows students to study one language to degree level (either Chinese, French, German or Spanish), in conjunction with courses that develop their communication skills more generally, as well as their knowledge and understanding of societies, cultures and political systems. Levels 1, 2, and 4 take a mixture of mandatory and optional courses. In Level 3 students spend one semester abroad but may spend the full year abroad if they wish. There is sufficient flexibility in the programme structure to allow students to select courses in areas of specific interest. It is a requirement of the programme that a period of time is spent abroad in the third year, as on all LINCS UG programmes (except BSL where students undertake a mandatory placement year in the UK).**Level 1**Students take language courses (1 per semester) at Intermediate level (for those with Post-Higher/ A-level qualifications in the language of study) or they will follow an accelerated intensive beginners course. Mandatory courses explore management in a global context, intercultural issues, the history and culture of countries where the chosen language is spoken, and academic or professional skills. Those who take Intermediate level language courses can also choose two courses from a range of electives.**Level 2**Level 2 moves into the advanced study of the students’ chosen language. Students will take two language courses, one mandatory course on general linguistics, and they further their understanding of the principles underlying the key aspects of cultures, societies and political systems in contemporary Europe and the wider world. Two elective courses can be chosen from a range of electives offered in LINCS.**Level 3**Students will spend at least one semester working or studying abroad but may spend the full year abroad if they wish. If one semester is spent abroad, students will return to Edinburgh to undertake supervised project work in the other semester.**Level 4**Level 4 comprises one language course in each semester, two mandatory courses on international politics and social and cultural issues from a comparative perspective, as well as two optional courses from a selection including, for example, applied linguistics and sustainable development. Students will also complete an Honours Dissertation in the course of the year.
