Course summary

BA German and Russian is an extremely rewarding and coherent degree programme, where both sides reinforce one another through the study of a shared history in the contemporary period. **German** - Our core German language courses (at post A-Level or beginners' level) are complemented by a variety of other subject areas, including linguistics, and a wide range of cultural and historical units that use German-language sources to improve your core language competence, as well as your wider knowledge of German-speaking countries.- Specialisms in German include historical and contemporary linguistics, literary studies, screen studies, gender and sexuality, modern cultural history, minority cultures and Holocaust studies. - The third year includes a period spent in a German-speaking country. You can choose a work placement, teach English in schools as part of the British Council's assistantship scheme, or study at our prestigious partner institutions in Berlin, Freiburg, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Leipzig, Basel and Innsbruck.- Our teaching, praised in the Teaching Quality Assessment and by external examiners, is backed up by an innovative Independent Language Learning Programme, enabling you to take control of your own learning experience.- Enjoy strong links with the Goethe Institute and the Austrian Cultural Forum, which sponsor a varied programme of cultural events. **Russian** - You will be provided with a broad grounding in Russian area studies (including Eastern Europe), with an emphasis on the integrated study of language, culture and society.- Independent, monitored self-study will reinforce your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. - Our language courses are taught by native speakers of Russian and English speakers with a superior command of Russian, and are supplemented by structured independent language learning activities. - There are separate pathways for beginners and post-A level students in the first two years of study. - You will benefit from access to a range of Russian cultural and social events to further your study of the language and culture. You may also learn Polish.
