Both departments aim to create a friendly, open and supportive learning environment which enables you to reach your full potential.The combination of German with Mathematics allows you to develop the skills that are highly sought after by employers, across a range of industries.There is a wide range of expertise available within the Department of Modern Languages and this is reflected in the module choices we offer. You could choose modules on linguistics (both modern and historical); dialectical (the study of different forms of German, past and present); literature; the history of ideas and artistic movements; historic literature and prose, variations in the German language and the language of Business through the medium of German.The module options in the Department of Mathematics will provide you with the opportunity to uncover a discipline that combines the identification and analysis of shapes and patterns with the ability to confidently analyse data.Throughout the four years you will receive four weekly hours of language work which includes oral, written, aural and translational aspects of German. First year modules may include European film, algebra, calculus, probability, culture and politics of language across Europe.

We assess our students in variety of ways depending on the modules. In our language classes, you will be assessed through continuous assessments and an exam at the end of Year 1 and Year 4. Our elective and compulsory modules are assessed through coursework in the format of a presentation and/or essay and an examination.Studying for a degree in Mathematics and German will equip you with a range of transferable skills which are highly valued by employers.
