In the summer semester 2016, the Faculty of Philology launched the open master’s degree programme “Language – Literature – Culture”, featuring a cross-disciplinary curriculum which allows students to attend courses outside of their subject of study. The programme allows master’s students to choose from a broad array of courses which correspond to their individual academic and research interests.
