Language, Communication and Economics in Europe
The degree program
Since the winter semester of 15/16, the University Siegen
has offered the binational six-semester bachelor's degree
program in Language, Communication and Economics in Europe
together with the University Orléans in the scope of the
German-French university (Deutsch-Französische Hochschule;
DFH), which results in the German-French double degree Bachelor
of Arts (B.A.) and Licence Langues Étrangères Appliquées (LEA).
Supported by the DFH, students alternate between the sites of
Siegen and Orléans: Students spend their 1st year of studies at
the University Siegen, the 2nd year of studies at the
University Orléans and the 3rd year of studies has German and
French students together at the University Siegen.
The studies are made up of the areas of applied linguistics, foreign languages (French, English) and economics. Students acquire reinforced knowledge of language, culture and economy of the neighbouring country of France, research use of language and communication in subject-specific, organizational and intercultural contexts.
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:
Language, Communication and Economics in Europe can only be studied as an advanced major in the research-oriented subject combination program.
Requirements for admission are:
- General university qualification or subject-related university entrance qualification (prospective students with qualification for universities of applied sciences require an aptitude test)
- A prerequisite for access is verification of special language skills (level B2 for French and English), which are generally proved by the university entrance qualification. It is highly advisable, if not mandatory, to take part in a language test before the start of the semester, which provides the basis for a subsequent counseling session to prospective students and teachers.
Students prepare for their professional future in the professional fields of corporate communication, public relations, further education and HR work, or a subsequent master's degree program.
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.
