Lucy Cavendish has a small but welcoming Modern and Medieval Languages community, comprising around twelve 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.

Further information about the course can be found on the Faculty and University websites.
