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.

Our Department of Politics is the UK’s No1 for research. You’ll take at least three politics modules each year. Topics include political analysis and comparative politics. In the final year you’ll carry out your own research project, supervised by a member of staff.

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

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