BA Latin and French / Careers

Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

A degree in Latin and Modern Languages paves the way for an exceptionally broad range of careers. You'll develop analytical and problem-solving skills together with intercultural awareness and communication skills - which are highly valued by employers.

You'll acquire transferable expertise at the very heart of language learning, including enhanced powers of perception and interpretation and advanced decision-making and multitasking skills.

With the UK's departure from the European Union, The British Council has cited French as one of the top languages required for the UK to remain competitive globally (CBI/Pearson Education and Skills Annual Report 2018), underlining the fact that your language skills will offer you an advantage in business and finance careers.

Your in-depth understanding of language will open up numerous paths with an international element, and you'll have developed excellent all-round communication skills that will make you a strong contender for openings in the media, PR and similar areas.
