The specialist pillar of German Studies deals on a scientific level with the performance and impact of the German language and German-language literature in their historical change, their aesthetic peculiarities and their social conditions.

At the TU Darmstadt, the German studies course as part of the Joint Bachelor of Arts is geared towards the three Germanic sub-areas of Modern German Literature, German Linguistics and German Language and Literature of the Middle Ages (Medieval Studies). In the course of the course, there is either a focus on literature or linguistics.




The professional fields of application for Germanists are widely spread. There are mainly employment opportunities at universities, in literary or linguistic teaching and research as well as in language teaching in private schools. Other areas of activity can be found in school or specialist book editorial offices, in publishing houses (e.g. in proofreading), in radio, television and newspaper editorial offices, in PR and advertising agencies, in libraries and archives, at international organizations, Goethe Institutes and in cultural area (e.g. as a dramaturge or dramaturge at the theater). With additional business management qualifications, they can also work in commercial enterprises (e.g. in sales and marketing or in human resources).

It is therefore important, in addition to studying, to gather your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
