German Language

German Language programme is designed with a rigorous grounding in the mechanics of the German language. The curricula provide all Universum students with a series of courses as well as Academic Writing courses. Additionally, the proposed program offers degree-specific curricula that will provide German BA students with a range of career paths to explore. It will do this without funneling students into particular “streams”: coursework includes a menu of options including: pedagogy, journalism, German literature, and linguistics. The degree program thus offers a general approach to the pursuit of studies in German, and provides students with a broad exposure to employment options that they can explore over the course of their studies.  The general aims of the  Programme are as follows:

  • Express ideas, opinions, and arguments in clear, grammatically sound spoken German.
  • Paraphrase, analyze, and critique scholarly writing.
  • Approach written discourse with keen critical thinking skills.
  • Critically analyze and explain linguistic terminology as it applies to Albanian and German languages.
  • Demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences in German.
  • Apply analytical skill in writing and research projects
  • Practice different teaching methodologies in order to apply his/her knowledge
