Course summary

For centuries, both English and German-speaking cultures have had a profound international influence on literature. This programme aims to develop your critical, analytic, linguistic and creative skills by engaging with a broad range of texts in both English and German, and a variety of approaches to reading. In Europe, more people speak German as their native language than any other, and the language ranks in the world top 20. On this joint programme, you’ll learn the German language while studying literature, as well as film and theatre, all within the context of historical and political developments from medieval to contemporary times. Likewise, our English Literature curriculum explores the cultural contexts of writing in English from the late middle-ages to the present. By enhancing your unique literary and critical faculties, the programme prepares you to contribute to a society in which an understanding of texts of all kinds is crucially important. It also includes a year abroad in a German-speaking country. We are the oldest department of English Literature in the UK, one of the longest established in the world, and proud to be based in the heart of the first UNESCO World City of Literature.
