Course summary

As the most economically and politically influential country of the European Union, Germany has frequently been studied from a political science perspective. Through intensive study of the German language and culture, you will gain an advantage by developing an understanding of how German speakers interpret the world through their language and within their specific historical context. Our German courses explore political issues such as the legacy of the Holocaust, migration and minority cultures. The Politics side of the programme focuses on a variety of issues in politics, political theory, public theory and international relations in Europe, Russia, Africa and the US. It aims to equip you with substantive knowledge on a range of political systems, institutions, processes and ideas. This will enable you to develop and apply your knowledge and skills to the understanding and evaluation of political issues and problems in the contemporary world. This will include the morality of political action, and the limits of freedom and justice. Uniquely in Scotland, studying at Edinburgh enables you to take a full year abroad as part of your four-year undergraduate programme, either studying, teaching or working. You'll therefore spend Year 3 in a country where German is spoken.
