The Language Studies with English and German (Honours) programme from The Open University, will cover a range of aspects relating to the language and its cultures around the world.
On completion, you’ll be an independent and intercultural user of German, have a wide-ranging understanding of how the English language is used to influence, and persuade.
Key features of the course
– Develops you into a proficient user (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages level C1) of German
– Develops advanced knowledge of the cultures where German is used
– Explores the evolution and diversification of English as a global language
– Extends your competence in intercultural communication
– Offers the option of a week in Germany
Skills for career development
By the time you graduate, you’ll be an effective communicator with an awareness of cultural differences and similarities – attributes that are particularly valuable in an environment of increasing international contact. If you learn about English alongside another language, your study of its structure, history, and place in societies and cultures will greatly enrich and develop your understanding of all aspects of communication.
As a linguist, you’ll enjoy a broad range of career opportunities directly related to your field: teaching; translating; interpreting; the diplomatic service; the media (publishing, journalism and advertising); leisure, tourism and travel; and working in international organisations and government bodies. There is also particular demand for language skills in education and more broadly across the economy in client-facing roles.
These range from business development, sales, marketing, logistics, tourism to supporting and managing performance in global markets, and to offering services (from health and social care to driving instruction) in an increasingly diverse UK. Studying a language can also be your passport to new life abroad.
