Course Summary:
Through our required language modules you will attain a high level of proficiency in speaking, writing and reading the German language, whilst developing your knowledge and critical understanding of German culture and society. Our language course is designed to support a range of levels of competence in German Рfrom A-level (or equivalent) to native fluency Рand to the internationally recognised Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Our cultural curriculum reflects our commitment to innovative and research-led teaching, with staff from across the Department contributing introductory and specialist modules that draw on their own research in German literature, culture and history. Teaching style Modules are taught by our expert staff through a combination of lectures, small seminars or tutorials, and expert one-to-one supervision. Language classes involve in-depth work with different kinds of media, literary and academic texts. Teaching is in German and English, according to the subject area. Our teaching style is interactive; you will participate informally in small group discussions, in seminars or online discussion platforms, and formally through seminar presentations and oral assessments. Structure of course and assessment You will be assessed in a variety of ways, including pr̩cis (written or spoken summaries) and oral presentation, work placement portfolios, longer academic essays in both English and German, and oral and written exams. Location Located in the heart of London, the department can draw on unparalleled print, audio-visual and online resources, including the King's Maughan Library and Senate House Library, the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, the British Film Institute and the British Library. All are within easy walking distance of the Strand Building. The Goethe-Institut and Austrian Cultural Forum also have extensive media and library holdings, and run lively programmes of films, readings, seminars and exhibitions which complement the Department's internal film screenings, open seminars, exhibitions, and annual departmental play. All teaching takes place at the Strand Campus. Special notes The third year of this programme is spent in Germany, Austria or German-speaking Switzerland, normally as a student at university or as a teaching assistant in a school or on an approved work placement. We have exchange links with universities in Munich, Frankfurt (Main), Heidelberg, Berlin, Mannheim and Vienna (under the European Union Socrates-Erasmus scheme).
