About BA German and Italian

Expertise in modern languages has never been more important as the United Kingdom forges a new relationship with its European partners and seeks to develop its trading and cultural ties throughout the world.

This Joint Honours degree enables you to develop your understanding of German and Italian language and culture. Both departments have international reputations for outstanding teaching and research.

Not only are German and Italian two of the most important languages in European commerce, politics and trade, but Germany and Italy have played vital roles in shaping western culture, politics and thought. 

You will divide your third year between Germany and Italy. There are opportunities to complement your specialism in German and Italian with options that include a comparative element.

We have a regular programme of visiting speakers who complement our regular teaching with specialist talks on their research interests.
