About German and International Relations at University of Reading

Gain a high level of expertise in German and immerse yourself in its culture. Address the issues facing the country, and gain a broader view of the world's most pressing problems through the joint study of international relations.

Join our friendly and dynamic Department of Modern Languages and European Studies, which offers the opportunity to study in a lively, multilingual community with staff and students from all over the world. We offer a flexible and supportive approach to learning which allows you to tailor your degree to your interests, including the opportunity to learn other languages.

Through this course you will become confident and highly skilled in written and spoken German. You will master the fundamental elements of the language, to the point where you will graduate with a near-native command of it. We’re proud of our small language classes, led by native speakers. Direct access to expert staff for help and feedback ensures you develop your language skills to the best of your ability. A wide range of optional modules in German and German-speaking history, film, literature and linguistics enhance your learning, and provide you with an in-depth knowledge of the country. You will have the opportunity to explore topics such as German cinema, the reunification of East and West Germany in 1989 and what life was like in the former German Democratic Republic.

In international relations, you will acquire a strong grounding in fundamental elements such as political ideas and international relations theory. You will spend most of your contact in small teaching groups, allowing you to interact directly with staff and add your own voice to the discussion. You will have the opportunity to study a wide range of specialist core and optional modules, which cover topical issues such as European political integration, international terrorism and the Middle East crisis. The course also delivers innovative modules in which you can take part in United Nations and Middle East simulations and get a direct feel for the political process.

We provide accelerated learning in German, meaning that you can start at intermediate level if you have previously learnt it up to GCSE or AS level. Regardless of which level you join the course at, all students achieve the same standard of written and spoken German by the final year. Please check the entry requirements for more details on entry points.
