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. The University of Bristol is a centre for the study of modern languages and cultures, and offers a dynamic environment in which to carry out your studies. This joint honours degree enables you to develop your understanding of German and Portuguese language and culture. Both departments offer outstanding teaching and research. Germany remains central to the European economy, guaranteeing high demand for advanced fluency in the German language and familiarity with the diverse nature of the culture, history, politics and lifestyle of the German-speaking world. Portuguese is the seventh most widely spoken language in the world and is an official language in nine countries across four continents. The political weight of countries such as Brazil and Angola means that Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand. In language classes you will develop speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation skills using textbooks, media and internet resources. You will also study literature, cinema, history, thought, politics, linguistics and culture, choosing from a wide range of optional units. We have a regular programme of visiting speakers who supplement our regular teaching with specialist talks on their research interests. You will divide your third year between a German-speaking and a Portuguese-speaking country, either studying or undertaking a work placement. There are opportunities to complement your specialism in both languages with options that include a comparative element.
