Skills and Training


Our French studies course is designed to develop your linguistic skills to near-native proficiency and fluency. We stress the development of your practical command of French, emphasising language as a means of communication and mutual understanding. Our programme is also designed to develop your understanding of French culture and society – its traditions, its complexities, its underlying ideas – and to develop your critical, analytical and collaborative skills. Language classes are supplemented by a series of thematic modules, also taught in French, which focus on contemporary French society, and particularly on French politics, history, sociolinguistics, media, film and literature. You will be taught by research experts with international reputations in their fields, all in a lively, friendly, experienced and enthusiastic department.

The Sociology programme at Aston is designed to develop your sociological analysis and research skills, help you develop informed understanding of the major debates shaping today’s society, and cultivate a wider ‘sociological imagination’ about the contemporary world. The course deals with social theory, research methods and ‘substantive’ modules equally in each year, revisiting certain core themes and skills at higher levels of analysis at various points in the programme. You will complete introductory and intermediate modules in research methods in preparation for designing your own independent research project in the Final Year. You will also establish foundations in sociological approaches to gender, ‘race’, class, and sexuality. This will feed into higher level courses that deal with more complex issues including the relationship between science and ‘race’, reproductive politics, corporate power, climate change, ageing, religion and media power.
