History and Modern Languages

The richness and variety of the cultural and intellectual topics that are available at Oxford make this a stimulating and exciting course, enabling language, literature and culture to be related to their historical contexts.

The degree takes four years to complete, since students spend their third year abroad in the country of the language studied: see the main Modern Languages page for details.

The Course at St Peter's

The college admits up to four students per year across the joint schools with History.

The modern languages offered at St Peter’s include French, German, Modern Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian and Czech (with Slovak).
