The Department of German and Romance Languages contains the subject environments for German, Spanish, Italian and French. The department forms the administrative and managerial framework for these subject environments and their degree programmes. Collaboration at departmental level covers academic regulations, forms of instruction, the reception of freshmen, the study environment and other issues of shared interest.
This collaboration primarily takes places in the Degree Programme Board, which consists of a teacher and student for each subject. Administrative staff and student counsellors also take part here. A teacher (subject coordinator) and student represent the department in the School Board of Studies.
The Department of German and Romance Languages is one of the nine departments at the School of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University. The department collaborates with the Department of English in accordance with the school’s language strategy, which is based among other things on collaboration with the language degree programmes at Aarhus BSS.
