Management will develop your understanding of modern, complex business organisations and equip you with the skills needed to manage them. A combination of core and optional modules will introduce you to key topics such as accounting practices, organisational behaviour and marketing, as well as giving you the freedom to develop specialist knowledge of topics that interest you such as corporate social responsibility, logistics or employment law.
This flexible degree allows you to become fluent in German while exploring literature, cinema, philosophy, politics, history or specialised uses of language. Core modules will improve your language skills and introduce you to German culture and society, but youll also choose from a wide range of optional modules on topics such as translation, using German in a professional context and representations of war and conflict.Back to top
A Joint Honours degree allows you to study the same core topics as students on each Single Honours course, but you’ll take fewer options and discovery modules so you can fit in both subjects. You’ll study one of our Cornerstone modules in Year 1 to draw your two subjects together, and apply your knowledge and skills to a major research project in either subject in your final year.
You’ll sharpen your language skills in your first year, as well as exploring German culture, history or translation. Following this you’ll continue with core language study and choose from optional modules on topics such as German cinema or politics in the ‘Berlin Republic’. All of this will prepare you to spend your time abroad working or studying in a German-speaking country. When you return, you’ll take advanced language classes and choose from further options, including the use of German as a professional language.
Youll develop your contextual knowledge and key skills in your first year, when core modules introduce you to accounting practices, economics in business and organisational behaviour. In the following year youll build on this knowledge, with core modules on topics like marketing and operations management, while choosing from optional modules. Youll continue to benefit from this choice in your final year, as well as studying business strategy and operations management.
