New Tripos in History and Modern Languages

last modified Mar 16, 2017 02:28 PM

The Faculty of History and the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages are delighted to announce that undergraduates at Cambridge will be able to read for a degree in History and Modern Languages from 1st October 2017.

The new four-year degree represents an exciting opportunity for those wishing to pursue their interests in both History and Modern Languages. Students will study one foreign language throughout their course, and they will be able to choose from a rich selection of courses offered by both Faculties. Like other language students, they will spend their third year studying or working abroad thereby immersing themselves in the language, culture, and history of a foreign country. This degree will also provide opportunities to work with historical sources in foreign languages.

Students will conduct intensive study in language, culture, film, the history of political thought, as well as in a wide variety of modern British, European, American and World history. In the third year abroad, they will prepare a dissertation relating to the history, thought or culture of the country in which they are living. In their final year, they may also do an optional dissertation to replace any paper from either History or Modern Languages.

Initially, the languages offered will be French, German, Russian and Spanish. Russian may be learned from scratch or studied following on from an A-level (or equivalent).  French, German and Spanish will be post A-level only.
