24cp; availability: not offered to exchange and study abroad students
Requisite(s): 976421 Contemporary Germany AND 976001 Foundations in International Studies AND CBK90485 32 cp German Language and Culture



This subject is the key component of the Germany major in the BA in International Studies, which involves two sessions of study overseas attached to a partner institution of UTS. In-country study is designed to enable students to experience living and studying in the culture of their specialisation and is guided by the principles of cultural immersion and reflection, as well as self-reliance.

The subject recognises that intercultural learning is integral to professional practice. It aims to foster in students a capacity for critical reflection – in particular, the ability to identify and question one's cultural assumptions, values and beliefs, and thus to acknowledge and empathise with the perspectives of people from other cultures.
