BA (Hons) German and Chinese
Provides a comprehensive grounding in German language, literature, culture, history and linguistics. It enables students to become proficient enough in German to live and work effectively in a German-speaking environment. Students will also develop a firm grounding in Mandarin Chinese and in contemporary Chinese culture, society, economy and politics as well as China's changing relations with the West.
- Core German language courses at all levels of study are complemented by a variety of other subject areas, and by a period spent in a German-speaking country. We have specialists in an unusually wide range of German-related subjects, so that you can focus on subjects that really appeal to students in their final year of study.
- Students will study Mandarin Chinese throughout the course. The core language teaching in Mandarin Chinese enables students to develop various linguistic skills: speaking and writing accurately; understanding and analysing audio, video and written material; using different registers; speaking to a group with confidence; and translating with appropriate sensitivity.
- At the same time, students can choose China-related topics in literature, film, cultural studies, politics, history, linguistics, economics, development studies, and business, drawing on the wide range of research expertise in Chinese Studies across the Faculty of Humanities. In this way, they will be able to tailor the course in keeping with the development of their interests.
The degree is awarded as a single class, based on the marks achieved in both languages.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2013 will be approximately £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £13,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate fees pages.
