Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages Open Day

1d ago


The Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages Open Day provide an excellent opportunity to visit the Faculty, view our facilities, meet lecturers and students. The Faculty holds an Open Day annually in March and also participates in the summer Cambridge Open Days. You can study for a Degree in Modern and Medieval Languages (MML) or Linguistics. In the MML course, you study two languages for at least the first two years of the course. You can choose from: • French • German • Italian • Portuguese • Russian • Spanish Alternatively, you can combine any of these with either Classical Latin (if you’re taking it at A Level/IB Higher Level) or Classical Greek (which can be studied post-A Level or from scratch). If you wish to combine one of these modern European languages with Arabic, Hebrew or Persian, you can do so by applying for the Asian and Middle Eastern Studies degree course. Alternatively, there is a course in Linguistics. Linguistics is the systematic study of human language. Superficially, there's huge variation among the world's languages, and linguists not only describe the diverse characteristics of individual languages but also explore properties which all languages share and which offer insight into the human mind. The study of linguistics draws on methods and knowledge from a wide range of disciplines. For instance, the study of meaning draws on philosophy, the analysis of the speech signal uses methods from physics and engineering, and the study of language acquisition draws on psychology.
