The MA in German Language and Culture in Europe is a new jointly taught programme by German Studies experts at both Mary Immaculate College and the University of Limerick. The design of the course responds to the demand for plurilingual European citizens and reflects Ireland’s increasing integration into a constantly changing European Union in which Germany represents a crucial economic, political and cultural force. By positioning German culture firmly within an EU and broader European context, the programme explores its relationship with Europe, the cultural dimensions of the European integration process and the inter-relationship of German and neighbouring cultures. Alongside comparative cultural knowledge the programme intends to provide graduates with high-level language competence in order to equip them with both the linguistic and conceptual skills to operate in an increasingly multicultural environment in Ireland and abroad and function effectively as cultural mediators between Ireland and the German-speaking countries. Designed to prepare students for leadership roles in cross-cultural contexts both within Ireland and for the EU, this programme is also attractive to existing and future teachers of German in secondary schools, where a progressive Europeanisation of the curriculum will be one of the features of educational reforms, and to students interested in evolving employment prospects in the tourism sector or multi-national companies.

The programme will enable students to:
• Analyse and interpret German-language culture within a broader European context, including the inter-relationship between Ireland and Germany, Switzerland, Austria
• Handle a wide range of communicative situations in the foreign language and communicate in oral and written German with a high degree of accuracy and confidence
• Function as plurilingual European citizens with both the linguistic and conceptual skills to operate in a future increasingly multi-cultural environment in Ireland and abroad and function effectively as cultural mediators between Ireland and the German-speaking countries
• Fulfil leadership roles in cross-cultural contexts
• Conceptualise larger research projects (e.g. in preparation for further study towards a PhD degree) and participate in a broader intellectual community of postgraduate research and learning.

Overview

The MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict (German lead language) aims to provide students who already have a background in German at undergraduate level with an opportunity to specialise in the area of literary analysis with particular emphasis on narratives of conflict in the cultures and societies of German-speaking countries. The programme introduces students to academic research, new ideas and theoretical approaches. It aims to equip students with academic, analytical, creative, reflective and presentation skills in order to foster interest and involvement in the field of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with specific emphasis on narratives of conflict. It also aims to enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts of European languages, literatures, cultures and societies, in particular with regard to Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Course Structure

The part-time MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict is a two-year degree programme. The structure is the same as outlined for the full-time programme but it is spread over two years. Before registration for the part-time programme, students should agree a plan of taking modules with the Head of Subject of the ‘lead language’ (German).

The Viva Voce Examination will be taken at the end of the second year, and the minor thesis has to be submitted by the end of July of the second year for graduation in November of the same year. Alternatively, the thesis can be submitted by the end of October of the second year (without any additional financial implications) for graduation in September of the following year.

1. Students choose a ‘lead language’; they are obliged to take both language modules in this language.

2. Students have to take at least one (in French two) of the subject-specific modules offered by the lead language subject.

3. Students have to take ML 610 (Research Skills) and the modules concerned with narratives of conflict.

4. For the remaining 10 credits, students can either choose the remaining subject-specific module(s), or they can choose two of the remaining SMLLC modules.

5. The Viva Voce Examination ML629 (conducted – at least partly – in the ‘lead language’) in early June.

6. Minor theses will be supervised by SMLLC Full-time members of staff after consultation with the student.

Career Options

This interdisciplinary MA gives students an ideal starting point for an academic career in literary studies, conflict studies or language studies. The combination of subject-specific, interdisciplinary and transferable skills, which are the intended outcome of the programme, would also make it a useful qualification for entry into the teaching profession, research work, or for careers with an international dimension, in diplomacy, journalism, business or academia.
