Lucy Cavendish has a small but welcoming Modern and Medieval Languages community, comprising Bachelors, Masters, and PhD students, along with Erasmus students.
The BA in Modern and Medieval Languages is a flexible degree course, and offers the opportunity to study two languages from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, or to combine one of these with Classical Latin or Greek. MML graduates have gone on to pursue successful careers in a variety of fields, including journalism, the arts, marketing, law, finance, teaching and the Diplomatic Service; a small number become translators and interpreters.
The Modern and Medieval Languages course at Cambridge is flexible and wide-ranging in scope, offering students opportunities to study in depth the culture, history, literature, philosophy, art and film relating to the languages taught.
In each year of the degree, students take papers of two kinds:
The degree requires the study of two languages, at least for two years. One may be a classical language (Latin or Greek).
In third year, students embark on a year abroad.
Further information regarding the paper options available for specific languages can be found on the Faculty and University websites.
