German Language and Culture

The teaching in practical skills towards the beginning of studies in German Language and Culture is intended to lay the foundation for scientific work and scientific thinking. As their studies progress, students' practical language skills will be improved by doing separate exercises. However, studies are more than mere language practice; they include important scientific components on various aspects of German language and culture: linguistic research, literature in German, the history of the German language, Landeskunde and cultural background. Studies moreover include Dutch language.

Depending on their interests and professional objectives, students of German language and culture can take intermediate and advanced studies, so-called specialisation studies, with an emphasis on business communication, foreign language teaching and the research of culture and literature. Not all study modules are offered every year, thus it is advisable to avail oneself of the option to take examinations on set books.

Language of instruction: German or Finnish.


All non-native exchange students wishing to study German Language and Culture are required to take and pass a skills test.
