Course Summary

This Graduate Diploma in German Studies is designed to develop your German language skills and/or increase your knowledge of German culture, as well as improving your research and study skills.

This is an undergraduate-level qualification that will prepare you for postgraduate study. Graduate Certificates/Diplomas typically take one to two years to complete and are made up of two, three or four modules at final-year undergraduate degree level (worth 60, 90 or 120 credits).

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go in to careers in international organisations or businesses, translating and teaching, research and journalism. Possible professions include translator, teacher, researcher, or journalist. This degree may also be useful in becoming a Diplomatic Services operational officer or interpreter.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.

Modules

This module, leading to CEFR stage C1 (Advanced)/ C2 (degree level), will increase your textual understanding of German passages, for example on current affairs in Germany. It aims to help you build up vocabulary and achieve a good command of syntactical structures in German. You will also have the opportunity to practice your spoken German and enhance your comprehension skills.
