Welcome note from Head of German Department

Welcome to the Department of German! The study of languages and literatures in all their artistic manifestations is the very pulse of education in the humanities. Focusing on the creative potentials of cross-cultural awareness, we aim at educating our students to become competent communicators, enlightened intellectuals and critical citizens of a global society. Exploring the cultural traditions of German-speaking countries in the centre of Europe we offer training in the analytical and discursive skills. Such skills are necessary for a critical and creative interpretation of the currents of cultural and social life in these countries as well as in the world of global exchange.

Studying German at UCC, students will enjoy the benefits of a small but vibrant department where they can avail of small group teaching, lively class discussions and plenty of opportunities to receive personal feedback.  In addition to integrated language courses we offer a great variety of lectures and seminars on German social and political institutions, literature, film and media, history of ideas, teaching German as a foreign language and intercultural communication.

German can be chosen as a degree subject of following undergraduate programs:

The German Department also contributes integral components to the following postgraduate degree programmes:

PhD-opportunities: The Department of German offers PhD-students an exciting and vibrant research environment. Lecturers at the Department have built upon years of research and have received international acclaim for their published work. Areas of expertise include drama and theatre pedagogy, interculturalism, German and comparative film and literature studies, media aesthetics and critical theory. PhD-students in German enjoy this environment and not only avail of the one-to-one support but also of the intellectually engaging supervision style of our Lecturers.
