About

Both culturally and commercially, German is an extremely important language. Within Europe, it is spoken by more people than English or French. The German (Hons) program is offered at University of Kent.

Overview

Fluency in the German language, combined with knowledge of political and cultural developments in the German-speaking world, opens up career opportunities in many parts of the continent. At Kent, we specialise in teaching the language, literature and culture of the German-speaking world of today, as well as in exploring its literary and social history.

Key facts:

Along with the other European languages taught at Kent, German has state-of-the art computing and audio-visual facilities, and benefits from having a language lector sponsored by the Austrian Exchange Service and native speaker language assistants from Germany. Many classes are taught in German, and German may be studied at Kent either post-A level or ‘ab inito’ (from beginners) level.

You are required to spend a year working or studying abroad between your second and final year of study. In previous years, students have studied at our partner institutions in a country appropriate to their programme of study. In the German (Hons) program offered at University of Kent you’ll develop your language skills, grow in self-confidence, gain a new academic perspective, and enhance your employability.

Programme Structure

  • On most programmes, you study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. At all stages it may also be able to take ‘elective’ modules from elsewhere in the University so you can customise your programme and explore other subjects that interest you. One we would recommend is SCL504 - European Political Cinema.
