We also contribute to interdisciplinary MA programmes incorporating a degree of specialisation in Germanic studies.
In the MA in Critical Theory and Modern Languages, you can take up to two-thirds of your modules in Germanic studies, with a focus on German cultural and literary theory, and/or modern German literature.
We offer optional German modules as part of the MA programmes in European Theatre and 19th-century Studies.
