The master's programme in German provides students with the opportunity to study German literature, language and culture/civilization at advanced level.

Students will meet enthusiastic teachers and fellow students in an academic environment where students are offered close follow-up.

The master's programme in German builds on the specialization in German within the bachelor's programme in Language and Literature, but involves a deeper and more specialized study within the disciplines German language, literature and culture/civilization. The programme contains advanced courses in German, or other equivalent, approved courses.

About the Programme

The programme of study incorporates studies of literature, grammar, the history of the German language, and linguistic theory. It also enables students to specialize within language or literature. A specialization course during the master's programme gives the opportunity of further specialization within the students' chosen field of study: Modern German language, early German language or literature. Particular emphasis is placed on scholarly thinking and working methods. Translation and German proficiency is taught throughout the course of study (four semesters). The master's programme as a whole will also develop the students' further knowledge of German civilization.
