Germanic Studies (programme track)
You'll develop a critical understanding of the most important current issues and controversies within Germanic Studies. You choose one specialised area within the general field of Germanic Studies (for instance German politics, 19th and 20th-century German and Dutch literature, German thought, German and Dutch linguistics or Luxembourg studies). This focus helps you develop in-depth knowledge and the capacity for independent investigation and critical analysis. If you're sure you don't want to progress to a PhD, choose this course. It has a shorter dissertation and a greater proportion of coursework than the research track.
Core modules: approaches to Germanic studies 1; approaches to Germanic studies 2; research methods in modern languages; research colloquium; dissertation. Optional specialisation: Choose from: modern German political culture; German intellectual history; 19th-century German literary studies; 20th-century German literary writing; post-war German politics; Germanic sociolinguistics and pragmatics; Dutch linguistics; Dutch literature since 1945; Luxembourg studies.
Approaches to Germanic Studies is assessed by a 3,000-word essay. Research colloquium is assessed by a presentation and participants are required to actively participate in the organisation of the Colloquium. The final dissertation will be 12,000-14,000 words.
