Overview

The subjects of the Portuguese-Brazilian studies are in particular the language, literature, culture and regional studies of Portugal and Brazil. The course is divided into the areas of language practice, linguistics, literary studies as well as regional studies and cultural studies. The language practice mainly conveys the Portuguese language in written and oral form in its European and Brazilian varieties.

Areas of study in linguistics are in particular the theories and methods of general, Romance and Lusitan linguistics, the linguistic system of Portuguese and its use, the variation of Portuguese and its linguistic history, possibly taking into account Portuguese varieties, including Galician, the History of general, Romance and Portuguese linguistics and linguistic reflection as well as language in its socio-cultural, biological and application-related contexts.

Literary studies deals with the theories and methods of literary studies, with the history of literature in its course, text analysis and interpretation, with literature and non-literary text types and the area of ??literature and other media.

The subject of regional studies is the social and cultural conditions of the Portuguese-speaking countries (e.g. geography, history, politics, philosophy, art, everyday and regional cultures, media, social systems). The regional studies modules are usually offered in Portuguese.

The teaching of language practice serves to develop the basic skills of reading, listening, speaking and writing with reference to the application-related levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (GER). Further study objectives are the development of strategies for language mediation and language acquisition as well as the use of language and independent and cooperative learning.
