Each year you will take two course units in each subject.
The French element is structured around core course units in spoken and written language. You will use film resources and computer programmes designed by the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures; with language laboratories, satellite television and internet available all day for personal study. Elective course units in French introduce key areas such as history, linguistics, politics, literature, theories of communication, cinema and the visual arts.
In Music you will study core areas such as tonal music and the history of music, as well as choosing from a wide variety of options comprising subjects such as composition, performance and theory and analysis.
Throughout the course, you will:
learn to converse and write confidently in French
analyse and critique French materials in a wide variety of media
work with industry standard equipment in specially designed music studios and rehearsal facilities
work alongside practising professionals from different musical traditions.
All undergraduate degree courses at Royal Holloway are based on the course unit system. This system provides an effective and flexible approach to study, while ensuring that our degrees have a coherent and developmental structure. In the case of combined degree courses, this approach also makes it possible to change the balance of your subjects during your time at Royal Holloway.
The websites of the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures and the Department of Music give detailed lists of the course units taken for each different subject.
