Summary... header image

The course covers three key areas and you will be encouraged to develop specialist interests by choosing from a range of optional subjects:

Language programme: this builds on the written, oral and aural skills you acquired at school and develops both fluency and accuracy in expression. 

Area studies provides an introduction to society, political and cultural issues and current affairs in modern Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Literature and textual studies introduces you to key aspects of modern German literature and to reading and analysing literary and non-literary texts in German.

You must spend at least two months in a German speaking country, but in practice you are likely to spend longer, typically an academic year.
