Old Aberdeen Campus
First Year: One set of courses is for beginners or near beginners. These provide intensive tuition in written and spoken language, including classes with native speakers, and an introduction to modern French culture, literature and society. Another set is for students with SQA Higher grade or GCE A Level or equivalent. These include written and spoken language and the study of 20th century culture, literature, film and society. In both cases, students not wishing to proceed to Honours in French may study language alone.
Second Year: Language work includes written and spoken language classes, reading and listening comprehension. Ex-beginners have an extra language class. Literature, Culture and Society courses study the theme of French national identity at different periods; French Linguistics may also be studied. Again, students not wishing to proceed to Honours in French may study language alone.
Third and Fourth Year (Honours): French language courses are available in third and fourth year for students not wishing to proceed to Honours, as well as for Honours students. They include written and spoken language classes. In addition, third and fourth year students study cultural, social and literary topics.
