The minimum entry requirement for German Studies honours is completion of all of the requirements for the BA, with a major in German and an average of at least H2B (70%) in second and third-year subjects within the major, or equivalent.

The honours program in German Studies comprises advanced coursework and an individual research project designed to extend students' knowledge and skills in one specific field of German Studies (such as German linguistics, German literary studies or German cultural studies). After successfully completing the program, students will have gained considerable practical skills such as research skills, report writing, presentation and communication skills, language skills and international and cultural awareness.
