This course combines history of art with study of German. This course combination offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and provides a valuable skill set that is ideally tailored to an increasingly globalised workplace. As the UK renegotiates its relationship with its European partners, the importance of German - the most widely spoken language in the European Union - has never been greater. As well as following structured language and art history courses, you will study literature, history, thought, politics, linguistics and culture. You will spend your third year abroad on a work or study placement in a German-speaking environment, which will enable you to refine your language skills and cultural knowledge. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment for students as staff respond in their teaching to new developments.
