About

German and Italian (Hons) at University of Kent enables you to learn the language and culture of both Italy and the German-speaking world.

Overview

Italy is the cornerstone of European art, culture and history and Italian gives you the tools to explore this cultural richness, including Italy's Roman heritage, the Renaissance, modern architecture and fashion. Its influence is widespread in the arts and Italian is spoken not only in its home country, but also by over 15 million people in countries including Switzerland, North America and Australia. German is the most widely spoken language in Western Europe, and German history, science and culture have had a huge impact across the world.

Studying German and Italian (Hons) at University of Kent gives you the opportunity to become proficient in two major international languages, and complement your language learning with a broad understanding of history, literature and culture. Fluency in the these two languages, combined with knowledge of political and cultural developments in German- and Italian-speaking countries, opens up international career opportunities.

Key facts:

Studying at our Canterbury campus gives you a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in both languages. There is a large community of French and Italian-speaking students on campus, and our proximity to airports, the Channel ports and the Eurostar terminals at Ashford and Ebbsfleet make it quick and easy to get to Paris, Brussels and Lille, and from there to the rest of mainland Europe.

A number of our staff are native speakers and our facilities include multimedia laboratories, which offer a variety of interactive language learning programmes and dictionaries, and access to audio, video and computer-assisted language learning.

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 (for German and Italian this is usually six months in each country). You’ll develop your language skills, grow in self-confidence, gain a new academic perspective, and enhance your employability.

German and Italian is an ideal combination of subjects to enable you gain advanced language skills and a broad cultural understanding, and gives you the tools to embark on an international career.

Programme Structure

  • On most programmes, you study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. You may also be able to take ‘elective’ modules from other programmes so you can customise your programme and explore other subjects that interest you.
