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.
