German, with over 90 million speakers, is the language of the greatest economic power in Europe. Language skills are vital to the UK’s economic, political and strategic interests and languages graduates are in demand by employers. Whilst you will acquire the same skills as other Arts graduates, you will have one major advantage compared to other students: you will have lived independently in at least one foreign country, and have learnt the important social skill of intercultural communication. Employers value the independence, the social confidence and the high level of linguistic skill acquired during this time.
Your BA in German and Maths opens up a range of exciting opportunities for employment and further training. Modern linguists are statistically amongst the most employable graduates. Many of our students go on to teach the languages they themselves have learned and a high proportion of our graduates go into administrative and managerial posts. A degree from the European Languages Department is a qualification which opens the door to many professions in Britain, such as the civil service, tourism, social work, librarianship, publishing and broadcasting, and our degrees also take our students across the world.
Your year abroad will set you apart from the majority of graduates, demonstrating your ability to live in a foreign environment, and immerse yourself in a different culture. Alongside this, the university will offer you a range of initiatives to help improve your employability skills. Paid work and work experience opportunities are available in the University and the town, and the Careers Advisory Service are able to assist you in planning your future, putting together a CV, and looking for work during and after your studies. Furthermore, the University’s Personal Development Portfolio, in which you record and reflect on your academic studies, the development of your skills and your plans for the future is a useful way of tracking your progress through your studies, and can help you to decide what career might be suitable for you.
From the point of view of the Mathematics side of this degree, you will be prepared for careers in which specialist numerical skills and logical and analytical thought are in high demand. These include working for organisations such as the Office of National Statistics and the Meteorological Office, but career paths such as accountancy and banking, risk analysis and actuarial work, finance management, investment analysis, information technology, research and lecturing are also open to you. The addition of a modern language will of course greatly enhance your potential, opening doors both home and more widely across Europe.
