Empirical and Applied Linguistics

The course of study is structured as follows: After completing the three compulsory modules “Methods of Applied Linguistics,” “Usage-based Language Description,” and “Language Theories, Concepts and Models,” students choose a specialization module in one of the following subjects: General Linguistics, English Linguistics, German Linguistics, Indo-European Studies, Dutch Linguistics, and Romance Linguistics (French/Italian/Spanish Linguistics). Next, students choose two elective modules from the following: “Language Typology and Comparison,” “Historical Linguistics,” “Variation Linguistics,” “Language in Interaction,” “Language and Culture (Anthropological Linguistics),” “Multilingualism and Language Acquisition,” and “Language and Media.”

The practice module and the module “Master's Thesis” are again obligatory for all students. In the practice module, internships or tutorials can be completed and students jointly organize the student congress linkon, where their own research projects are presented.

The master thesis is written in the respective specialization area.

The following overview shows a prototypical sequence of the master's program:
