German

German at the University of Newcastle is offered through a major in modern languages in the Bachelor of Arts. It is a major world language, with native speakers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and other countries both within and outside of Europe. Many major authors and poets such as Goethe wrote in German, and a large amount of scientific literature has also appeared in this language.

German provides students with the opportunity to achieve high level language skills in written and spoken German.
