German and Classics

The study of German at Edinburgh covers not only the language, but also a broad range of literary and cultural topics. These include film, theatre, translation, politics and gender, Germany and Islam, East German studies, Brecht, the Third Reich and the Holocaust, German Romanticism, Goethe and Schiller, and medieval studies. The oral language practicals cover a wide range of stimulating up-to-date cultural and political topics. German literary culture has been profoundly influenced by the reading of Latin and Greek works since the Middle Ages, and on this programme you will have the opportunity to explore works that demonstrate this influence, for example by the great German writers Goethe and Schiller. You will be taught by world-leading specialists in all these areas. You will benefit from access to extensive and constantly updated study resources, including audio-visual and web-based resources and rich library holdings. German universities have a very strong tradition in the teaching of classics, and so you will have a choice of excellent destinations for your period of study abroad.
