The Faculty's mission is to provide undergraduate and postgraduate education of the highest quality in languages and language-related studies. The courses we offer prepare our students for a wide variety of careers. Yet we also want them to enjoy learning for its own sake and we encourage them to explore their interests to the full. Our courses provide our students with a unique opportunity: we try to ensure that they make the most of it!
We came top of the league table for Modern Languages and Linguistics in the University Guide 2014 published by the Guardian newspaper. A maximum score of 100 out of 100 put Cambridge amongst the top rated of all UK Universities for student satisfaction (with the course, teaching, and feedback), as well as student/staff ratio, spend per student, and career destinations.
Leaders in world-class scholarship and teaching, our academic staff are pioneering researchers in a wide range of fields that include the phenomenon of human language itself, individual European languages and language families, and the literatures, art forms, film, history, and cultures associated with those languages both today and in the past.
We currently have approximately 700 undergraduate students, 50 MPhil students and 120 doctoral students across six departments. Teaching takes place across all departments: our Linguistics degree is mainly taught in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics.
We offer two undergraduate degrees:
- Linguistics BA/L (Q100)
- Modern and Medieval Languages BA/MML (R800)
- Information on the written test for MML
