German Studies at Sheffield combines intensive language training with rigorous academic study. We teach in German on many of our modules, which cover literature, culture, history, philosophy, politics, language theory and usage in German-speaking countries. You will spend your third year in Germany or another German-speaking country, usually as a student at a university, though students sometimes go on approved work placements. The Sheffield University Management School, where you will spend roughly half your time, is triple-accredited (by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS) which puts it among the top one per cent of management schools in the world. It’s also one of the biggest departments in the university, with students from every part of the world, so you can expect a vibrant, multicultural atmosphere. Choosing a degree like this one is often the first step towards a richer intellectual and cultural life. A second language, and experience of living and studying in another culture are big advantages in the jobs market too, particularly if you want an international career. Recent graduates have gone into teaching, translating, journalism, broadcasting, government and business.
