Overview

The course combines intensive language training with rigorous academic study.

We teach in German on several of our modules, which cover literature, culture, history, philosophy, politics, language theory and usage in German-speaking countries. Specialist options include Dutch and Luxembourgish.

The philosophy side of the degree is flexible. There are no compulsory modules so you can shape your own course. We cover key areas such as ethics, philosophy of mind, theory of knowledge, political philosophy, metaphysics and logic. We also teach courses on major figures, including German philosophers such as Kant and Hegel.

In the first year you’ll begin advanced practice in spoken and written German. You will also study contemporary German society and its history; and phases of German literature.

In the second year your language training gets more advanced. Option modules include topics from linguistics, German literature, society and politics, history, philosophy and film studies.

You spend your third year in Germany or another German-speaking country.

In the final year your language training continues. Major options include German thought, modern and pre-modern literature, politics, linguistics, Dutch and Luxembourgish.
