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 modules in Polish language and culture in our Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies. You will spend your third year studying or working in Poland and a German-speaking country.
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.
