The bachelor's degree "Multilingual Communication" teaches you specific language skills in the three major Western European languages ??English, French and Spanish. The students choose a first foreign language (F1) and a second foreign language (F2) from the three offered languages; the basic language is German.
The scientific basis of language studies plays just as important a role in this course as communicative competence and an understanding of economic, legal and political contexts. As a student, you will also deal with the respective national cultures. The compulsory semester abroad also enables you to familiarize yourself practically with the respective culture.
The semester abroad is a special feature of the course. It is planned for the 5th semester and will be completed in a country whose official language is one of the two languages ??you are studying. Above all, you should immerse yourself in the language and get to know the country's culture intensively. At the same time, the stay abroad gives you the opportunity to develop and habitualize your language skills in authentic communication situations. You can complete the semester abroad either as a study semester at a university or as an internship (e.g. in a company).
The course builds on the language skills acquired at school and, if applicable, abroad or in practice. Very good foreign language skills in the two languages ??to be studied are required for admission to the course.
The contents of the bachelor's degree are broad in order to create a solid basis for a variety of language-mediating activities in later professional life. In addition to the intercultural and communicative competence to be acquired in the two foreign languages ??and the basic language German, the course focuses on 1) culture and media, 2) business and 3) translation (translation and interpreting). These specializations are chosen in the 3rd semester and are studied in the 4th and 6th semesters. Information technology and other subjects such as law and technology round off the broad spectrum of the course.
The course itself has a modular structure. The individual modules are made up of different courses. For successfully completed courses, students receive credit points (LPT) according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Once all of the credit points required for a module have been acquired, the module is deemed to have been completed.
The professional fields of the graduates of the bachelor's degree in multilingual communication are extraordinarily diverse and above all dependent on individual interests, inclinations, skills and work experience. They work in different areas in which international and intercultural communication play a major role. Depending on their focus, they work for internationally active companies and organizations, including in the following areas: (international) marketing / sales, (international) recruitment, internal communication, corporate communication / PR (especially with focus on business), content management, event organization (especially with focus on culture & media), translation and project management for translation projects (especially with focus on translation).
