We teach most of our language and culture modules in small groups, which is a considerable advantage when learning a language and sets us apart from most other universities in Ireland and further afield. We also offer a rich and lively course for first year students in Beginners German, run by dedicated language specialists; this course connects to the Area Studies and Literature elements of the core German course. Whether you are a beginner or have completed German to post-Leaving Certificate (or equivalent) with us you will acquire advanced competence and fluency, spoken and written, in the German language. You will also develop reading and communication skills alongside methods of research, description, and analysis in literature, history, culture, film, and society of the German-speaking countries. You will be encouraged to follow your curiosity and develop specialist interests by choosing from a wide range of optional subjects. All this in a small, friendly, award-winning department with a wide extra-curricular programme including a theatre group, debating, and film evenings.
