By undertaking research in German Studies at Birmingham, you will be joining one of the leading centres in the country for German language, literature, history and culture.

We offer an exceptionally wide range of expertise ranging from traditional literary analysis to cutting-edge interdisciplinary approaches.

Why Study this Course?

World-leading research: In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) results, 75% of research at the University of Birmingham for Modern Languages and Linguistics was judged to be ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
Research culture: The Department of Modern Languages is home to one of the UK’s largest groups of internationally renowned researchers in the national cultures of Europe. You will have the opportunity to be part of the stimulating research culture within the Department, but also benefit from the multidisciplinary Institute for German Studies.
Interdisciplinary study: You can pursue specialist, cross-disciplinary or interdisciplinary postgraduate study in any of the language specialisms at the University. You can also research a wide range of cultural, literary, historical, and socio-political topics related to periods from the Middle Ages to the present day. Since we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary work, it is possible to arrange joint supervision involving staff from other departments, thereby giving you access to a broader knowledge base and maximising the quality and originality of your work.
