German Department


According to Wu Shulian rankings, the German subject of SFL ranked first in mainland China for 6 consecutive years since 2012. Our students’ PGG and PHG scores have been among the best in the national universities. The students have won prizes as the first teams or the best debaters in the Nationaler Debattierwettbewerb für Germanistikstudierende. The department has signed exchange and cooperation agreements with five well-known universities including the University of Bonn and the University of Munich, and offers a joint program with the University of Munich and a 2+2 double degree program with the University of Applied Sciences in Konstanz to allow every student to enjoy the chance to study at famous universities in German.


Guided by the principle of “solid foundation, wide scope, high quality”, the department aims to cultivate students equipped with German and English proficiency as well as knowledge of other subjects and intercultural communication competence. Students are expected to be interdisciplinary talents capable of translation, teaching, research and management work. Our graduates mainly work in world-renowned companies, German-invested enterprises, Sino-German joint ventures, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, etc., or continue their studies at prestigious universities in China and abroad. Among them are outstanding diplomats, master’s and doctoral students who continue to study at prestigious German universities (University of Munich, Humboldt University, Germany, etc.) and analysts working at Deutsche Bank.
