The Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics is the home of language and linguistics teaching and research at the University of Cambridge.

Our research investigates the phenomenon of human language itself, individual European languages and language families, and the literature, art forms, film, history and cultures associated with those languages both today and in the past.

The Faculty houses a number of subject areas including French, German, Italian, Modern Greek, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Theoretical and Applied Linguistics. With more than 800 students, we are one of the largest humanities faculties in the University and one of the largest languages faculties in the UK.
