Course summary

German

As an MA (Hons) student of German, you will develop language and communications skills to a high level of proficiency. By studying German at St Andrews, you have scope to follow your own particular interests by choosing from a broad range of course options that reflect and explore the rich cultural heritage of the German-speaking lands, including: medieval studies, film, intellectual history, and literature and society from the 18th century to the present day.

The MA (Hons) in German at St Andrews uses a specially designed language teaching programme that caters both for students who have already studied German as a main subject at school and for beginners.

The MA (Hons) in German is also available as a five-year course with an integrated year abroad. The integrated year abroad is an opportunity for students to spend a year working in a German-speaking country between second year and third year.

Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development is widely regarded as the most promising framework for addressing environmental and developmental challenges in the 21st century. These challenges include the provision of clean water and adequate sanitation, energy generation and supply, human health, food production and distribution, and the continuing threat to biodiversity.

The MA (Hons) in Sustainable Development encourages students to rise to the challenges of the environment and society and focuses on the study of principles and practices of sustainability in an interdisciplinary environment.

Sustainable Development is studied up to Honours level in both the Faculty of Science (BSc) and the Faculty of Arts (MA). Students who have a background in the Arts or who wish to study Sustainable Development alongside Arts subjects at St Andrews should apply for the MA. For those interested in studying Sustainable Development alongside Science subjects, the BSc in Sustainable Development may be of interest instead.
