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. German at Edinburgh has an excellent reputation for its research. It 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.
Spanish and Portuguese are two of the most widely spoken languages in the world.
Their fascinating literatures and cultures are diverse and vibrant and have influenced countries and cultures around the world. Hispanic Studies at the University of Edinburgh will not only perfect your language skills, but will provide opportunities to explore the Hispanic culture and its geographical and historical diversity.
