History and Modern Languages

This joint honours degree programme offered by the Faculties of History and Medieval and Modern Languages allows students with a focussed interest in the language, literature, culture, politics and past of a particular country or region to immerse themselves in it for four years. There is much scope for tailoring a specialist course by selecting complementary options from each discipline. The degree programme includes a compulsory year abroad and graduates boast an impressive range of transferable skills.

Both disciplines flourish at St Edmund Hall. Our numerous teaching staff for Modern Languages means that our students are able to read History in combination with French, German, Russian or Spanish. The Hall is able to offer particular expertise in Russian history and culture. History fellow David Priestland and Modern Languages fellow Andrew Kahn both work in this area, and we also have a number of Fellows from other disciplines with an interest in the region.
