This is an interdisciplinary degree combining computing science and a language. It allows students to explore in depth the relationship between spoken and written natural language and the formal languages used in computer science. The same mathematical approaches are used to describe the structure and meaning of computer languages and human languages.
This course offers a unique combination of skills – technical, mathematical, analytical, communicative. In doing so, it provides two of the most sought after skills today: degree-level fluency in a second language and a degree in computers, opening up a host of possibilities for your future career.
For further information, please contact Dr Rachel Hoare, the CSL Co-ordinator for the French Department.
