What Will You Study

Lancaster’s four-year combined German Studies and Mathematics degree gives you the opportunity to learn in two highly regarded departments - our Department of European Languages and Cultures,  and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics which is ranked tenth by The Guardian University Guide 2014. 

You’ll spend your third year in Germany gaining valuable first-hand experience of Germanic culture and intensive exposure to the language. The Mathematics side of your degree covers central themes of pure mathematics, including analysis, algebra, number theory and geometry.

Your degree begins with courses including German Studies (Advanced or Intensive for Beginners); Calculus, and Matrix Methods. You’ll then move on to second-year subjects such as Becoming German: Post-War German Language, Culture and Identities; German Language Oral Skills, and German Language Written Skills.

In your third year, you’ll complete your Residence Abroad: Intercultural and Academic Reflection before finishing your degree with modules covering German Language Oral Skills and German Language Written Skills.
