Presentation

Objectives

Nowadays, mastering the German language and understanding the cultures of German-speaking countries are skills that have become a rarity, and which are highly sought after in the job market. Germany is France’s primary business and cultural partner, and the largest economy in the European Union. French/German experts are currently in high demand in France, as are those who have a good command of both written and oral German.

Our programme of study gives students strong proficiencies in German language and translation (French into German), but also in all cultural facets of German-speaking countries: the arts, cinema, theatre and literature, as well as the political, economic and historical spheres.

International partnerships

From the second year of undergraduate study, the emphasis is on total immersion in a German-speaking country, by means of one of our many exchange programmes that are integral to this programme of study:

  • the programme for the training of French-German experts (PEA) at University of Gottingen in conjunction with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), in L2;
  • Erasmus exchanges with our partner universities (Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Graz, Salzburg, Winterthur etc.);
  • the ‘Hambord’ Programme (French-German history option, in partnership with University of Hamburg).
