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.
About thirty per cent of your time in Sheffield is devoted to Dutch language and culture. You will spend your third year studying or working in Germany (or Austria) and the Netherlands (or another country where Dutch is spoken).
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.
