The content of the course is decided by consultation between each student and the supervising lecturer. Students read widely in all aspects of the culture of the language studied, including literature, linguistics, anthropology, religious studies, politics and mass media. Texts studied should be primarily in one of the relevant languages with supplementary material in English. Students present short reports on their reading every fortnight.

Learning Outcomes
