We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in German Society & Culture examine the socioeconomic and cultural institutions, practices and customs which originate from, or are related to, Germany.
Related postgraduate specialisms include German Studies, and European Culture and Thought. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject, such as Cultural Studies or Languages and Literature.
Known as ‘the country of poets and thinkers’, Germany offers a rich cultural history and diverse popular and intellectual cultural practices, of both religious and secular nature.
Courses in this field encourage postgraduates to critically analyse a range of issues within modern-day society in Germany, including social and political thought, cultural customs and traditions, and economic practices.
Postgraduates may specialise in a range of areas, and research opportunities are broad. For example, you might analyse how Germany plays and important roles as an industrial, economic and cultural centre not just for Europe but for the globe.
Careers in this field may include roles in the public sector, such as journalism, marketing and retail. Other careers may include roles in academia and publishing, as well as heritage management.
