Course Description


Major students receive intensive English-language linguistic training. The focus is on the interaction between language use and power structures. This will enable you to scientifically analyze, describe, and reflect on the role of language in social and, in many ways, mediatized negotiation processes, as well as its role in the creation, maintenance, and change of power structures. You can choose from modules on intercultural communication, sociolinguistics, critical discourse analysis, language, and the media. Towards the end of your studies, you will deal intensively with scientific communication.

An integral part of the combined bachelor's degree is the MarSkills, in which you acquire attractive and future-oriented key skills.
