This course combines the study of English language, literature, medieval studies and drama with German language and culture. This programme is varied and flexible, allowing you to tailor your studies to your own interests and aspirations. The German language element can be taken at beginners’ level or at a level suitable for those with prior German language experience. Beginners take an intensive programme of language instruction. The two strands merge in the final year and our students achieve degree-level competence in German regardless of their starting point. A key element of this course is the third year spent working or studying in Germany or Austria. This provides a fantastic opportunity to develop your language skills as well as putting your studies into context.
