The focus of our master’s program in Language and Communication is on linguistic research. That’s why the central element of this program of study is a three-semester project module. As part of this project module and together with a supervisor of the Linguistics department, students will design and conduct their own research projects over the course of one and a half years and present them at the end of the three-semester period. The master’s program in Language and Communication is a cooperation of the Linguistics departments of English, German and Romance Studies with the Leibniz-Institut für Deutsche Sprache and comprises several interdisciplinary modules. This allows you to focus on your preferred philologies and topics. Furthermore, as part of an elective module, you can take additional courses of the master’s programs in different subjects that are taught at other schools.
