Overview

Combining your studies in German and English cultures will introduce you to an international understanding of both, and will allow you a novel perspective on the way their identities define themselves one against the other, often in spite of their similarities.

Your dual honours programme in German and English will also include a full year abroad, which can be spent at a German or German-speaking university or on work-placement (either in a commercial setting or as an assistant teacher).

The German-speaking cities offer a great range of literary facilities which you can enjoy; and, at your German university, you can include a option in English Literature (preferably studied in German!). If you choose a work-placement, you can research a year-abroad project or dissertation on a literary topic, perhaps a comparative one.

Dual Honours German and English provide you with a combination of skills which is highly attractive in the modern world of work: the extensive training in analysis and analytical writing which comes with an Arts degree, and the foreign language talent and detailed experience of a foreign culture which few of your contemporaries possess.

Studying for a dual or combined degree with a modern language is a great way to distinguish yourself in the eyes of employers, and to open up whole new possibilities for your future life, close to home or further afield.
