German and Economics - University of Reading

Develop your knowledge of German, explore the culture of Germany and learn key economic analysis skills that will aid you in your future career. Become confident and highly skilled in written and spoken German. Master the fundamental elements of the language, to the point where you will graduate with a near-native command of it. Our small language classes are led by native speakers, and direct access to expert staff for help and feedback ensures you develop your language skills to the best of your ability. Explore the culture, history, film, literature and politics of this fascinating country. You will gain a deep understanding of, among other things, the profound impact of the unification of East and West Germany in 1989. The Department of Modern Languages and European Studies offers the opportunity to study in a lively, multilingual community with staff and students from all over the world. You will be able to tailor your degree to your personal interests, including the opportunity to learn other languages. 98% of our research overall in modern languages and linguistics is rated as world leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised (Research Excellence Framework, 2014), which feeds directly into your learning. Study practical issues in economics and explore the relationship between economics and society more widely. Focus is on the relevance of mathematical and statistical techniques to applied problems, rather than on the techniques directly. Extensive support with maths skills is available in the core modules should you need it. Optional modules span a number of topics, including business, policy, economic history and even the economics of climate change. Our staff are active researchers who are experts in a wide range of fields in economics, with many involved in research that informs policy decisions by governments, major multinational organisations and international agencies like the UN. Spend up to a year in Germany or Austria, either studying at a partner institution through the Erasmus+ programme or undertaking a work placement. Immerse yourself in the culture and considerably develop your knowledge of German at the same time. The core language module in the second year prepares you for studying abroad, equipping you with the skills and knowledge required to work and live in a different culture. Teaching is through traditional lectures and small group tutorials in which you can discuss and analyse theory and practice through case studies, exercises, group presentations and open debate. We provide accelerated learning in German, meaning that you can start at intermediate level if you have previously learnt it up to GCSE or AS level. All students achieve the same standard of written and spoken German by the final year regardless of which level you join the course at. Please check the entry requirements for more details on entry points. **Careers** By the time you graduate, you can expect to be able to write and speak fluently in German — an immensely useful skill to have given that there is currently a great shortage of well-qualified linguists in the UK, while the experience of studying and working abroad demonstrates self-reliance, adaptability and enterprise. As such, 98% of graduates from the Department of Modern Languages and European Studies are in work or further study six months after graduating (DLHE survey, 2015-16). Your analytical skills and specialist knowledge of economics will also make you in high demand. Our graduates have an excellent record of gaining employment or progressing to further study. Many of our graduates use their linguistic skills in companies with a German connection. However, prospects extend well beyond translating and interpreting. Recent graduates have been recruited by employers such as Sony Europe, the Civil Service, Oxford University Press and Dow Jones.
