Course description

Bristol is one of very few UK universities to offer a full Czech linguistic and cultural degree. Our course includes literature, history, cinema and contemporary society, studied with another modern language. You will study the language intensively in small groups, with close attention from expert teachers who are native speakers. Our students regularly achieve excellent, graduate-level fluency after four years. Our options are designed to allow you to explore the contemporary priorities and concerns of modern Czech society alongside Czech history and culture. Literature classes boost language learning with close reading of original texts in small groups. Final year students have the opportunity of writing an extended project on an aspect of Czech history, culture or society, and can take up the closely related Slovak language. Bristol is a very exciting place to study arts and humanities, with a thriving cultural scene, several art cinemas, concert halls and theatres and a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Modules

Year 1: Czech language; Czech language and society; introduction to Czech history; introduction to Czech literature; German language; introduction to German literature (1 unit); shaping contemporary Germany. Year 2: Czech language; 1 or 2 units on Czech 19th-century literature; German language; optional units. Year 3: Year abroad. Year 4: Czech language; cultural units (eg Czech fiction since 1958, Prague, Czech cinema since 1963); German language; optional units.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from German courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. The unemployment rates last year was lower than graduates in general. About one in six graduates got jobs in the EU – mostly as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. The German economy is faring rather better than ours at the moment, so there may be other opportunities for ambitious graduates over there. But more graduates went to work in London, and those who want to stay at home to work find jobs anywhere where good communication skills are a must, particularly in education, translation, finance and advertising. But remember – whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
