The Geography and German Studies Joint Honours degree programme gives you great freedom to pursue the areas which interest you most. You will study a range of modules across both subjects, giving you an excellent grounding for a wide range of careers. You will study alongside single honours students in both departments, in fact this joint honours programme is designed so that you will reach the same level of German as a single honours student. You will take the same amount of credits in total as your single honours classmates, however half your credits will be in Geography and half in German. The degree offers a broad range of Geography modules, coupled with a mix of general and specific German modules.
The Geography half of your programme will address key issues of today and tomorrow, such as climate change, water and ecosystem pollution, energy security, global economic problems, population pressure and a rapidly urbanising world. All of these factors have an impact on our daily lives, making this a rewarding and fulfilling subject to study. Here at Birmingham we have one of the UK’s most exciting Geography departments, with a large number of staff with specialisms in human, physical and environmental geography.
Studying German at Birmingham helps you achieve a high standard of fluency in spoken and written German. It also allows you to develop the analytical skills that will enable you to explore, in depth, some of the many areas – literary, political and cultural – in which the German-speaking countries have contributed to European life. A particular strength of the course offered at Birmingham is the range and coverage that we can offer. In addition to language teaching, you can study literature, history, linguistics, politics, business German, and cinema with us, and range from the study of the very earliest forms of German to contemporary culture, politics and history.
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
