German Studies, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

In this bachelor's programme, you will receive training in German linguistics and literature, supplemented by key practice-related and vocational knowledge and skills, e.g. from the areas of didactics and media studies. In addition, you will select a minor according to your professional or scientific interests.

The encounter with world-famous works and influential authors has increased my love for German studies. You immerse yourself in the origins and development of the German language, and the historical contexts in particular encourage everyone to take a closer look at the everyday use of language.
