Language as a gateway

Language and culture offers you tuition in German, using the experience of language learning as a gateway to the broader study of history, politics, culture, traditions, customs and national identities. You will gain competency in both language and cultural knowledge and will be encouraged to acquire a cross-cultural awareness preparing you for the possibility of life or study abroad.

Consider Language and Culture (German) studies as a major or add it to your studies in another degree as a minor or elective. Even just one or two semesters of language and cultural studies can provide you with basic communication skills. A language can help you with your chosen career path whether you're studying arts, business, sciences, engineering or education.

The study of language and culture will equip you for a variety of careers, including international business, trade and diplomatic services, journalism, arts and the creative professions and teaching abroad. It is also the ideal preparation for overseas professional placements or exchanges in fields such as business, engineering, sciences and information technology.
