What will I learn?
Students will research two of the following six themes and concepts in the language of their choice: Memory, Trauma, Collective Identities, Visual Culture, Post-Colonialism, Subjectivity and the Self. The degree will also help you develop your knowledge of one or more of the languages taught in SELCS (Dutch, French, German, Italian, a Scandinavian option, and Spanish).
Why should I study this degree at UCL?
SELCS at UCL is recognised as a premier department for the study of culture, history and language.
Our central location offers students easy access to excellent resources for a range of European cultures, such as the British Library, the Institute for Germanic Studies, Italian material in the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes along with access to numerous cultural and social events relating to the Spanish-speaking world.
UCL also boasts possibly the best Scandinavian Studies library outside Scandinavia and is at the leading edge of current debate in French, which involves challenging the boundaries of French studies and contributing to its remapping.
