About German and Philosophy at University of Kent

German is one of Europe's most important languages for business and culture. It is frequently used as a second language in Eastern Europe, serving as a means of communication across international boundaries. Fluency in the German language, combined with knowledge of political and cultural developments in the German-speaking world, opens up career opportunities in many areas of Europe.

As a student of Philosophy at Kent, you do not so much learn about philosophy as learn to do it yourself. This includes not only studying major philosophies and philosophers, but also contributing your own ideas to an ongoing dialogue. You develop the ability to connect the most abstract ideas to the most concrete things in our experience.

In combination with German, you will be in an ideal position to tackle some of the world’s leading German-speaking philosophers, such as Heidegger, Goethe, Wittgenstein and Kant.

Between Stages 2 and 3, you spend a year studying or working abroad in Germany or Austria, which will greatly improve your understanding of German. On your return you could choose to complete a dissertation on a subject of relevance to both areas of your degree, such as a German philosopher.

This degree programme is ideal for those wanting to gain a broad and detailed understanding of our world, developing a deeper understanding of German culture and art from the perspective of both an artist and a German speaker.
