Summary

This new taught master’s programme is run jointly by the School of Languages, Literature, Culture and Communication, University of Limerick, and the Department of German Studies, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick.

Uniquely among the MA programmes in German Studies currently on offer at Irish universities, this MA programme takes account of recent changes in Ireland’s economic circumstances. The design of the course reflects Ireland’s increasing integration into ,and interdependency with, a constantly changing European Union in which Germany will continue to represent a crucial political, economic and cultural force. By positioning German culture firmly within an EU and broader European context, the programme explores Ireland’s relationship with Germany as a key to a better understanding of this country’s relationship with Europe as well as the cultural dimension of the European integration process. The programme also features elements on Austrian culture, on Germany’s interaction with Eastern European cultures as well as the outside perspective of the European Union present in German-language Swiss writing. Beside the European focus, the traditional orientation of post-graduate degrees in German Studies towards literature is expanded by the inclusion of visual and other media texts, in particular film, once again exploring the European dimension of contemporary German-language cinema. Alongside comparative cultural knowledge the programme intends to provide graduates with high-level language competence related to the areas of potential future employment in companies in Ireland requiring near-native language competence in German, in Irish foreign trade organisations as well as in EU institutions.
