About

The Department of European Languages at Aberystwyth University offers a range of opportunities for research in three major European Languages - French, German and Spanish. The expertise of the teaching staff covers a variety of fields within each language, ranging from drama to cinema, to sociolinguistics, as well as philological language and literary studies.

Overview

Supervision of European Languages  projects at Aberystwyth University is always available on a wide range of topics. Candidates often spend a considerable part of their research period working in suitable foreign libraries and/or archives, while remaining under supervision from Aberystwyth.

Research Facilities

Good facilities are available to research students of the Department of European Languages. The University library has excellent collections of books and periodicals in each of the languages taught by the Department. In addition, the National Library of Wales, one of the five UK copyright libraries, is adjacent to the campus, and has a wide range of linguistic and literary material.

The Department has a suite of modern language laboratories that use the latest computer-assisted teaching packages. The laboratories also have state-of-the-art facilities and video on demand from a substantial collection of films, CDs and DVDs, and access to European satellite TV channels. The Department also enjoys strong links with other University departments and research groups across Europe. Members of the Department are very active in conferences and similar activities.

The Department is extensively involved in research activities at international and national level, and has secured several times the sector average in prestigious (and competitive) external funding, for example, Professor David Trotter has just been awarded £66,353 as the Aberystwyth element of a joint Heidelberg-Aberystwyth grant from the AHRC and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.

MPhil and PhD Supervision of research projects is available on a wide range of topics (for more details see research supervisors). Candidates are often required to spend part of their research period working in suitable foreign libraries and/or archives, while remaining under supervision from Aberystwyth.

The Department of European Languages is situated on the Penglais campus, which also houses the University's Hugh Owen Library with its extensive range of books and academic periodicals in all the languages which we teach. Departmental library allocations in Aberystwyth are generous, and the Department has consciously sought to ensure that the collections within our research and teaching interests are strong and up to date. The University has a lively postgraduate scene: regular research seminars are held in the Department, and it also hosts the Aberystwyth Linguistics Forum, which organises 2 – 3 papers on linguistics topics every year.
