Language and Communication
The degree program
The degree program permits studies of linguistics in light of a (foreign) language. After choosing one of the languages German, English; French or Spanish, the course will take place philology- and subject-comprehensively: On the one hand, German, English/American and Romance studies cooperate closely here. On the other hand, the studies of individual languages does not focus on their forms and structure, but also looks at language-comprehensive structures and the function of language as a communication medium for man, society and culture - the close connection between structures and functions of linguistic means and forms becomes clear this way.
The choice of focus language influences the subject-scientific part of the course. Specific module elements provide a deeper insight into linguistics of the respective language that is chosen as a focus area. Specialist knowledge and method competences are taught equally in the degree program. Additionally, students acquire or improve their skills in the chosen focus language(s) in practical language exercises on grammar, text production, translation and conversation.
The subject bachelor's degree program at the School of Arts and Humanities allows students to combine various major and minor subjects with each other. The following subject combination programs are available:

Examination regulations/degree plan/module
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
