Program description

German is the most widely spoken language in Western Europe and is becoming increasingly important as a business language in Eastern Europe. German history, science and culture have had a huge impact across the entire world, and graduate employers recognise the need for a broad cultural education alongside language skills. At the University of Edinburgh, you will explore this history and culture alongside the study of the German language. We have an excellent reputation for German research, which covers a broad range of topics, including German-Jewish writing, Medieval studies, East German studies, the Third Reich and the Holocaust, gender and politics, disability, travel writing, theatre and translation. The programme offers a comprehensively broad and challengingly deep training in the academic study of the English language. It aims to develop serious academic interest in and specialist knowledge of all well-understood aspects of the English language both historically and currently, and at all relevant levels of structure and analysis. In so doing, it offers you opportunities to develop intellectual and methodological capacities in rigorous, exact and strongly-theorised analysis. English language is a subject which is both historical and descriptive, and both text-focused and theoretical. In these several respects, the subject can be seen as encompassing and reflecting the traditions of both philology and linguistic theory. The University of Edinburgh's linguistics and phonetics equipment, for use experimentally and in fieldwork, is among the best in the world. You can also study Scots language which has its own rich linguistic and literary tradition. You will be taught by world-leading specialists in all these areas. You will benefit from access to extensive and constantly updated study resources, including audio-visual and web-based resources and rich library holdings.
