Germany is a leading economic and political force within the EU and internationally, and has historically played a central role in shaping European culture.
A degree in German will provide you with a high level of expertise in the German language together with an in-depth knowledge of social, cultural and political issues relating to the German-speaking world. Through the study of a wide range of topics in history, film, literature and linguistics you will gain a deep understanding of, among other things, the profound impact of the unification of East and West Germany in 1989, which led to the development of the new Germany.
You can also study German in combination with another language. Italian and Spanish can be studied from beginner's level and French from intermediate level (see specific course entry requirements for more details). Learning two languages at university will give you an even broader knowledge, as well as further enhance your career prospects.
