German Language

Although German language is presently only taught at level one, it is possible to pursue postgraduate studies i.e. BA (Hons),  MA and PhD in German. In addition German can also be taken for non-degree purposes. The study of German literature will form part of an integrated major in World Languages and Literatures, with thematically focused courses combining aspects of German, Italian, Russian and Spanish literature.

The honours course includes interdisciplinary options, an option on translation, and a research article/project. Undergraduate students can compete for bursaries from the German Academic Exchange Service ( to spend some time in Germany.

Postgraduate students (at MA and PhD levels) can apply for bursaries through UNISA's Financial Aid Bureau. For more information, please visit:
