Senior Sophister Year
The scope for developing specialist interests is extended in the fourth year. This is done firstly through advanced options, linking undergraduate study to the research expertise of staff, in classes where TCD students often work together with visiting students from Germany. Secondly, students research and write a dissertation on a topic of their own choice, which enables them to develop a specialist interest in literature, linguistics or some other aspect of German Studies. Virtually all classes are conducted in German.
Some Options offered in recent years:
Männerrollen in der Literatur des Mittelalters
Erzählungen vom Unbewussten in Aufklärung und Romantik
Um 1900: Jahrhundertwende
