About the Department


Department of German Language and Literature was founded in 1996 as a part of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka. The study programme is offered as a double major and can be combined with all other double major study programmes offered at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences:

  • English Language and Literature

  • Croatian Language and Literature

  • Philosophy

  • Computer Science

  • Pedagogy

  • History

  • Art History

  • Italian Language and Literature


The curriculum covers various areas of linguistics and literature, and the applied part of the study programme includes productive language skills and the exploration of culture and civilisation of the German-speaking world.


THE BOLOGNA PROCESS


In accordance with the principles of the Bologna Process, the Department of German Language and Literature offers two cycles of higher education study programmes: undergraduate study level (6 semesters) and graduate study level (4 semesters).

At both levels, in addition to the core courses, the Department offers a number of elective courses. All the courses are one-semester long and differ in the number of ECTS.

Courses are held entirely in German, which contributes to the continuous development of the students’ language competences. Some of the courses are taught by native speakers.


SCHOLARSHIPS


The Department provides students with the opportunities to travel and study in the German-speaking countries, through scholarships offered by:

  • DAAD

  • OEAD

  • ERASMUS

  • CEEPUS


EXCURSIONS AND CULTURAL EVENTS


The Department organises various excursions (Berlin, Vienna, Hamburg...), as well as a number of cultural events (film festivals, literary meetings, symposia, concerts, theatrical performances…). The Department is also an accredited examination centre for awarding Austrian language diploma/certificate (ÖSD).
