German Studies – Willkommen! (Welcome!)

The German Studies program is designed to enable students to develop a high level of communicative competence in the German language and a critical awareness of fundamental areas of German studies: literature, cultural studies and linguistics. Students will develop writing and research skills appropriate to advanced independent study.

You will be taught by talented and enthusiastic native speakers, all of whom have extensive experience in language and university teaching. We use music, film, popular media and literature to assist you to improve your language skills and to gain an understanding of the history and culture of the German speaking countries.

We prepare our students for life-long learning, both academically and vocationally. Learning pathways extend from first year undergraduate subjects to honours and beyond.
