Germany is the largest country in the European Union. Historically, it has linked Slavic Eastern Europe with Western Europe. This function of Germany as the bridge between West and East still plays a very important role in European political and economic developments. Germany is well known as a major economic power in the world and also has a rich and varied culture and artistic heritage: from some of the world’s most influential modern philosophers, such as Nietzsche and Adorno; to the cream of classical composers like Bach and Beethoven. German is the native language of about 100 million people, the official language of Germany, Austria, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein and one of the official languages of Switzerland. It is also the most common lingua franca in Eastern Europe.
There are no restrictions on entry to the Germany major of the International Studies program. Students who already have a sound working knowledge of German on entry to UTS have more options for the development of their study program when they undertake in-country study in Germany, however, it is also possible to enter the Germany major with no previous knowledge of the German language.
