While teaching in Western and Eastern Languages and Cultures (L-11) is language centred, there is a strong focus on the cultural and literary aspects of the languages that are studied. This makes the course particularly suitable for students who want to study the humanities in an international context, in which European and non European cultural aspects are open to comparison and exchange.

Students select two languages and literatures that they will study throughout the three year (L-11) undergraduate and the two year (LM-37) postgraduate degree courses. Undergraduates may select two of the languages and literatures from the following list:

  • Anglo-American
  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • French
  • English
  • Spanish
  • German
  • Russian


Postgraduates may select two of the languages and literatures from the following list:

  • Anglo-American
  • Chinese
  • French
  • English
  • Spanish
  • German
  • Russian


Language students are strongly urged to attend classes given by native speaking teachers. In class, students are divided into small groups and language learning focuses on the acquisition of particular skills. Language students are also encouraged to make use of the fully equipped language labs.

Linguistics and semiology, philology, history and literary criticism are taught alongside the language and literature classes, enabling students to study the cultural aspects they find most interesting in detail, within established courses.
