Welcome to Modern Languages
A strong commitment to teaching and student support lies at the heart of Modern Languages at Swansea.
Our approach to modern languages is both liberal and innovative, embracing a wide variety of single and joint degrees that enable our students to deepen their knowledge of one or more languages and to explore the history and culture of Europe and Latin America.
