Study German language and culture, putting what you learn into the wider context of European history. The first year provides a broad overview of European history and starts your study of the culture and society of Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland. You’ll take German language modules at the appropriate level, from beginner to native speaker – no prior knowledge of German is required. In later years you’ll choose modules in European history and German literature, culture, and thought that complement each other. Teaching of written and spoken German continues all the way through to your final year, combining practical language teaching with modules that explore the language in different contexts. You’ll spend your third year studying or working in a German-speaking country, immersing yourself in its language and society, and in your final year you’ll complete original research on a history subject of your choice.
