The Bachelor of Arts degree program in the form of Joint Bachelor of Arts in subjects X and Y combines two equally important subject areas.
The Digital Philology specialist pillar deals with teaching and research in the humanities under the conditions of a digitized and digital culture and working world , i.e. the "digital humanities". The traditional humanities are being expanded through the use of digital technologies and are pursuing new research questions, also together with computer science. In this interdisciplinary field, sound knowledge of at least one humanities discipline and basic knowledge of computer science are essential.
If the Bachelor thesis (15 CP) is written in the Digital Philology subject of the JBA, it can in any case be written in German or English without any further application. The thesis can be written with a focus on corpus linguistics or with a focus on computer philology.
The professional fields of activity for graduates of the degree program are wide-ranging. There are mainly employment opportunities at universities, in literary or linguistic teaching and research as well as in language teaching in private schools. Other areas of activity can be found in school or specialist book editorial offices, in publishing houses (e.g. in the editing department), in radio, television and newspaper editorial offices, in PR and advertising agencies, in libraries and archives, at international organizations, Goethe Institutes and in cultural area (e.g. as a dramaturge or dramaturge at the theater). With additional business management qualifications, they can also work in commercial enterprises (e.g. in sales and marketing or in human resources). It is therefore important, in addition to studying, to gather your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
