Department of German Language and Literature

Germany’s prominence in cultural, geopolitical, and economic aspects accounts for its ever-increasing importance in the world. It comprises the German-speaking heartland, along with Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Austria. Combined with its geographic centrality in Europe, a reunified Germany has exercised its influence over the international community more than ever before and, thus, created a world-wide interest in its language and culture. Traditionally, Germany has been known for its world-class writers such as Goethe, Heine, and Kafka. The current language Department aims to equip students with skills in communicating in German; understanding German-speaking politics, socioeconomics and cultures, and appreciating German literature.


Graduates can pursue careers in business, the media, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, international trade, and in academia.
