German and Russian (4 years) - University of Bristol

Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world. The University of Bristol is a centre for the study of modern languages and cultures, and offers a dynamic environment in which to carry out your studies. This joint honours degree enables you to develop your understanding of German and Russian language and culture. Both departments offer outstanding teaching and research. Russia continues to assert itself as an independent, powerful, political and economic force, and Germany remains central to the European economy. There is high demand for advanced fluency in these languages and familiarity with the diverse nature of the culture, history, politics and lifestyle of the Russian- and German-speaking worlds. In language classes you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills using textbooks, media and internet resources. You will also study literature, history, thought, politics, linguistics and culture, choosing from a wide range of optional units. We have a regular programme of visiting speakers who supplement our regular teaching with specialist talks on their research interests. You will divide your third year between a German-speaking and a Russian-speaking country, either studying or undertaking a work placement. There are opportunities to complement your specialism in both languages with options that include a comparative element.
