Course detail

Description

This four year programme is designed to develop critical thinking and independence of thought about the past as well as focusing on an advanced study of German language and society. King's has a world-class reputation for the study of History, and students choose from an unrivalled range of options, from medieval Europe to modern India. Students on this programme choose from an exceptionally wide range of modules in the Department of German covering literature of all periods, German film, German history, German philosophical thought, and German political and social theory. 

Students can take this programme either with an A-level (or equivalent) in German, or as a beginner, following a specially-designed ab initio language course.

Further information about the Department of German and the Department of History.

Teaching style

Modules are taught through a combination of lectures, small seminars or tutorials, and one-to-one supervision, through which you will have contact with our staff, who are experts in their fields. Language classes involve in-depth work with different kinds of media, literary and academic texts. Our teaching style is interactive; you will participate informally in small group discussions, in seminars or online discussion platforms, and formally through seminar presentations and oral assessments.

Structure of course and assessment

Following Year 1 foundation modules in culture, history and politics, more specialised modules in Years 2 and 4 reflect the rich research expertise of German Department staff. Research ratings have consistently placed us as the best German Department within London, and Modern Languages research at King's achieved a 'power' ranking of 9th in the UK according the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. Our teaching is always inspired by our cutting-edge and world-class research, which means the best possible teaching for our students - you will be taught by genuine experts in their field.

 Our rigorous three-year language programme is tailored both to your own level of language competence, and to the internationally recognised Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Non-native speakers take core language modules covering the key skills of reading, writing, listening, spoken interaction and production, and translation. Native speakers currently take a separate module in Translation from and into German. Assessment is in a variety of forms including précis and oral presentation, work placement portfolios, longer academic essays in both English and German, and oral and written exams.

Location

Located in the heart of London, the department can draw on unparalleled print, audio-visual and online resources, including the King’s Maughan Library and Senate House Library, the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, the British Film Institute and the British Library. All are within easy walking distance of the Strand Building. The Goethe-Institut and Austrian Cultural Forum also have extensive media and library holdings, and run lively programmes of films, readings, seminars and exhibitions which complement the Department’s internal film screenings, open seminars, exhibitions, and annual departmental play. All teaching takes place at the Strand Campus. 

Special notes

The third year of this programme is spent in Germany, Austria or German-speaking Switzerland, normally as a student at university or as a teaching assistant in a school or on an approved work placement. We have exchange links with universities in Munich, Frankfurt (Main), Heidelberg, Berlin, Mannheim and Vienna (under the European Union Socrates-Erasmus scheme).

Career prospects

Studies of graduate employability repeatedly stress the career value of language degrees. Employers in UK and international business, the press and media, IT and technology, marketing and public relations, public administration, international development, law, finance, teaching and lecturing, interpreting, translating and others value foreign language ability, not just as a specialist skill, but as a personal quality that develops relationship-building, teamwork, and the capacity to move easily in international contexts. Studying German, you will also gain fluency in a language and knowledge of a country and its culture that is increasingly in demand, given Germany’s central role in European economic and political development. Recent employers of King’s German graduates include Goldman Sachs, Astra Zeneca, the National Assembly of Wales, CNN, the American University in London, and the University of Oxford.
