The Department of German Studies

Undergraduate students in the quadrangle outside the Trent Building, University Park
We promote excellent German language skills supported by native speakers and are committed to teaching in small groups.
 

With an excellent national and international reputation for teaching and research, we offer a first-class environment for undergraduate and postgraduate study. Our students are part of a vibrant research culture where a wide range of module choices reflects the specialist expertise of our academics in the areas of German Literature, Film, Media, History, Politics, Linguistics, Philosophy and Gender Studies. We are also one of the few departments in the UK offering Dutch to degree level.

All students are supported in their individual strengths and interests by our dedicated team of teachers: lecturers who are recognized experts in their field, committed personal tutors, experienced language teachers (many of them native-German speakers), and a highly supportive year abroad team with a dedicated Work Placements Officer.

Home to a lively student community we offer a broad range of co-curricular activities: our student-run German-language newspaper and annual German play production, and our active French & German society organizes regular social events and trips.
