Linguistics is a central part of the study of many language disciplines
The Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages is the home of language and linguistics teaching and research at the University of Cambridge.
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. Our research investigates 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.
The Faculty houses a number of subject areas including: Dutch, French, German, Italian, Modern Greek, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian.
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
