Applied Languages are accredited undergraduate modules in French, German and Spanish (normally 40 credits per year) which contribute towards your degree.
You can include a language module in many undergraduate degrees at the University of Dundee, as part of the flexible nature of many of our degrees. You can start a new language from scratch or continue a language you've studied at Higher/A-level.
Here are some examples:
- Student studying MA Environmental Science who has A level French, can study French for a third of the year in first and second year
- Student studying BSc Biochemistry with no languages at SQA Higher, can study Spanish for a third of their first year, from scratch
- Medical students can select a language module as a Student Selected Component (SSC) within their degree
For detailed on the Applied Language modules available, please visit the School of Humanities module webpages.
Students in some academic schools can choose to study a degree combined with a language:
- School of Humanities students can opt for a Single or Joint Honours degree with one or two languages, combining English, European Studies, History, Philosophy, Politics with French, German and/or Spanish
- Business students can combine one language with Accountancy, Economics, Financial Economics, Business Economics & Marketing and International Business degrees
- Psychology students can combine one language with MA or BSc Psychology degrees
- Geography students can combine one language with MA Geography degrees
- Law students can combine both English and Scots Law degrees with a language
University of Dundee students can also take accredited Languages for All modules (which are worth 20 credits), in an additional six languages, as part of their degree. If these are being taken for course credit, then there is no Languages for All course fee charged.
