This degree combines theatre with the study of German, a language spoken natively by more than 100 million speakers. Knowing German will give you direct access to the cultural production and political debates in German-speaking countries. The course offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and a range of options that will allow you to pursue your own interests. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment as staff incorporate new research into their classes. The theatre course will allow you to develop your understanding and practical skills by exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre makers and our museum-accredited archive, the Theatre Collection. You will follow a structured language course in German, as well as explore the rich culture and history of German-speaking countries and communities, choosing from a range of units in literature, film, history, thought, politics, linguistics and visual culture. You will spend your third year abroad in a German-speaking country, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities: bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/go-abroad/ When you return to Bristol for your final year you will have the opportunity to undertake an independent practical or written research project and/or a work placement in the creative industries. Teaching is delivered through lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, and one-to-one project supervision. Assessments may include presentations, essays, commentaries, exams, collaborative projects, debates, podcasts, video essays, and dissertations. Our course will ensure you practice a range of skills, which will make you attractive to future employers in the globalised workplace and in the sector of your choice. German can be studied from beginner’s level and post-A level (or equivalent). All modern languages students have access to our state-of-the-art Multimedia Centre. You can also access extracurricular activities such as talks by visiting speakers, societies, language cafés, student newspapers, and talent shows.
