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:

Kulturwissenschaft

Kunst nach Auschwitz

Männerrollen in der Literatur des Mittelalters
Endzeit
Erzählungen vom Unbewussten in Aufklärung und Romantik
Satire
Wiener Moderne
Modernism
Um 1900: Jahrhundertwende
Deutsches Gegenwartsdrama
