Subjects

Management studies

Modern languages

As well as developing your language competence, you’ll explore the theory and practice of business management, and the role of language, translation and intercultural communication in today’s global communication networks.
 
The language-learning element of your degree will involve translation from and to English, reading and listening comprehension, précis and paraphrase work, the study of different styles and registers, lexical exercises and oral work. At the same time you’ll also develop your business acumen by undertaking modules providing you with the foundations of business management. You may like to specialise in marketing or business ethics, or intercultural communication. 
 
Since presentation skills are vital in the contemporary work environment, you’ll focus on vocal and physical projection, developing poise and managing nerves. You’ll also practice speaking from notes, improvisation, and being able to structure arguments coherently.
 
In all of these activities, you’ll use contemporary rather than literary or historical materials.
 
You’ll also have the opportunity to take a third language as part of your degree or as a non-credit module with certification at no extra cost. You can choose from Arabic, British Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Advanced English.
 
**Course Structure**
**Year 1**
With a combination of compulsory and optional modules you’ll be introduced to key themes in the study of language, culture, and intercultural communication. You’ll investigate language and culture with topics related to your chosen language. You’ll also establish a solid understanding of business management via the compulsory modules Introduction to Business, and Introducing Intercultural Communication. You can develop your interests further via optional modules in, for example, politics, discourse, or interpersonal communication.
 
**Year 2**
At this stage of your course you’ll begin the process of specialisation while pushing your language fluency to the next level. You’ll develop expertise in the areas that interest you most, choosing topics such as subtitling and dubbing; the French language today, reinterpreting 21st century Spain, introduction to Japanese popular culture, and contemporary Japanese society. You’ll also specialise within business management taking modules on human resource management and marketing. You may also like to take optional modules on globalisation, the media, intercultural communication or politics.
 
**Year 3**
You’ll spend your third year abroad on a study or work placement in one or two countries where your chosen language or languages are spoken. This will greatly develop and enhance both your linguistic and cultural confidence; allowing you to think more as a native speaker.

**Year 4**
You’ll have the opportunity to really develop your business management understanding further and opt to specialise in either ethics, marketing, entrepreneurship or brand management. You’ll also be able to study intercultural communication with business and explore cross-cultural business
practices. You can also choose any media and society modules not taken in your second year, or spend a semester researching a topic of your choice in a dissertation.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a broad subject for a variety of European languages. No matter which you take, the general theme is that some graduates go to that country to work, often as English language teachers, some go into further study, often to train as teachers or translators, but most get jobs in the UK in education - most often as language tutors, unsurprisingly, or translators. Modern language grads can also be in demand in business roles where communication and language skills are particularly useful, such as marketing and PR, and in finance or law. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
