The single-stage, integrative Bachelor's degree in Linguistics lasts 6 semesters and is characterized by the fact that it combines the classic areas of linguistics with a foreign language and one of the following four specialist areas: another language, basics (philosophy), psycholinguistics or computational linguistics.

In each of the above-mentioned variants, a broad education in linguistics (around half of the study volume) including a linguistic specialization with different emphases is combined. The general linguistic component results in a broad coverage of all core disciplines of linguistics (phonetics and phonology, morphology and syntax, semantics and pragmatics) and the possibility of specializing in an interdisciplinary area of ??linguistics such as historical linguistics, psycho- and neurolinguistics, computational linguistics and linguistic diversity. Only very few linguistic departments in Germany currently do this.

Graduates of the bachelor's degree in Linguistics have a well-founded problem awareness with regard to the complexity of linguistic phenomena; they are able to familiarize themselves independently with questions or applications and carry out research on problems.


A course that integrates several sub-subjects:
In this course you receive a scientifically sound all-round training on the subject of "language" (general) and "languages" (similarities and differences). The course includes a significant improvement in your foreign language skills - in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, German as a foreign language, Hebrew, Yiddish, Latin or ancient Greek - and offers the possibility of different focus areas / orientations in:

  • Languages ??(2 foreign languages)
  • Basics (philosophy and 1 foreign language)
  • Psycholinguistics (psycho- and neurolinguistics and 1 foreign language)
  • Computational linguistics (machine language processing and 1 foreign language)

1st year of study
introductions to the subject linguistics and the three most important core areas (sound level = phonetics & phonology, grammar level = morphology & syntax, meaning level = semantics & pragmatics); Language courses, basics of philosophy and computer science.

2nd and 3rd academic year
Advanced language courses, deepening of training in the core areas and familiarization with a specialty:

  • Linguistic diversity and variation Sociolinguistics, language politics, language types and varieties
  • Historical linguistics
    Language change and language development
  • Psycho- and neurolinguistics
    language and brain, language acquisition, language disorders
  • Computational linguistics e.g. machine translation, speech synthesis and speech recognition, etc.
  • Linguistics of English, French, Italian or Spanish

In the variant with a focus on computational linguistics, there is a reduced specialization in the core areas in favor of a comprehensive familiarization with the theory and practice of language processing with the computer.


Entrance requirement for the integrative Bachelor's degree in Linguistics is general or relevant subject-specific higher education entrance qualification.
