Bachelor programme Linguistics

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The bachelor's programme in linguistics serves to provide academic pre-professional education and qualification for occupations requiring the application of scientific methods. Moreover, it introduces students to basic working methods and the inventory of knowledge of modern linguistics and psycholinguistics and gives them the opportunity to acquire enhanced knowledge in the form of two specialisations (general and historically-comparative linguistics; psycholinguistics) in addition to this general knowledge students have to choose one of these specialisations. Graduates will have broad training in the evaluation of linguistic facts and will thus be able to carry out research on linguistic questions autonomously and to acquaint themselves with application areas. This education is useful for occupations in which these skills are important. Graduates will possess a sound basis for the master’s programme in linguistics or for continuing education (e.g. in language analysis / language engineering, in education or in public health care).
