Your third year will be spent abroad in a German-speaking country as an English language assistant, studying on a university course, or on an approved work placement. Our graduates have gone on to careers in fashion, journalism, financial services, management and administration, teaching, travel and tourism, creative writing, and many other areas.

Programme Structure

This joint degree provides a broader understanding of the literature and critical theory aspects of your English studies, while emphasising linguistic training and the study of contemporary culture in German. As a language student you will be allocated to a stage of language proficiency in our unique system of seven language levels. This is designed to place you at the stage most appropriate to develop your spoken and written skills, enabling you to make rapid progress in your chosen language. In all years of study you will benefit from our wide range of resources. You will use the excellent facilities in the Centre for Language Study and in our German Resources Room, including extensive multimedia facilities and online/streaming resources.

  • In year 1,students normallytake a 50/50 balance of core modules in both subjects. However, you may take up to 15 credits per semester in the form of an alternative subject from elsewhere.
  • In your second and final year, you will have a choice of modules from both subjects, with the option of taking up to 25% of your programme in an alternative subject. A special module in year two will prepare you for your year abroad and for the academic work you will complete during this year.
  • The third year is spent in a German-speaking country which offers you a unique opportunity to enhance your linguistic and cultural proficiency. You can spend your year abroad as an English language assistant in a school, studying at one of our partner universities or on a work placement. Most students of German go to Germany, a smaller number go to Austria, and some have also chosen to spend a year in Switzerland. Our current German-speaking ERASMUS partners are the Universities of Potsdam, Hamburg, Freiburg, Bayreuth, Frankfurt, Marburg, Tübingen, Siegen, Cologne and Vienna. While abroad you will also conduct an investigative project, supervised by a tutor at Southampton.
  • The final year also leaves you with a large range of options in both subjects, taking into full account that you may wish to specialise in an area that most suits your interests and combines well with what you have studied so far. This includes the option to complete a dissertation in either subject.
