Language and Communication
The degree program
The degree program enables students to study linguistics with regard to a (foreign) language. After choosing one of the languages German, English, French or Spanish, the degree program is designed to be cross-philological and interdisciplinary: On the one hand, German, English/American and Romance studies cooperate closely here. On the other hand, the study of individual languages does not only focus on their forms and structure, but also directs attention to cross-linguistic structures and the functions of language as a means of communication for people, society and culture – the close connection between structures and functions of linguistic means becomes clear in this way.
The choice of focus language(s) has an impact on the subject-specific part of the degree program. Specific module elements provide a deeper insight into the linguistics of the language(s) chosen as the areas of special focus. Specialist knowledge and methodological skills are taught equally in the degree program. Additionally, students acquire or deepen their proficiency in the chosen focus language(s) in practical language exercises on grammar, text production, translation and conversation.
Can be studied as...
- 1-subject degree program (Concept A)
- An advanced major subject (Concept B)
- A major subject (concept C and D)
- A minor subject (concept B and D)
Depending on the program concept, students have the option of choosing one, two or three language specializations (German, English, French, Spanish).
Structure of the degree program
In undergraduate studies at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, students can combine various major and minor subjects in a variety of ways.
The following foreign language skills must be proven when choosing the language. English: Language skills of 7-9 years (level B2 according to CEFR); French: Language skills of about 5-7 years (level B1 according to CEFR); Spanish: Knowledge of the language recommended but not required.
The B.A. degree qualifies for a wide range of activities, e.g. in language schools and centers; communication consulting and training, production of teaching material and HR work; internal corporate communication and organization; press, media and public relations; intercultural mediation; software production and digital publishing; production of dictionaries; translation.
Organization of the degree program
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
