The research-oriented master’s degree in Romance studies ties in with the bachelor’s degree programs in Romance studies: In particular, it deepens technical knowledge, expands knowledge to include interdisciplinary aspects and strengthens theoretical and methodological skills. The main focus of the course is linguistics and literature as well as language practice. The master’s degree can be studied in six language combinations (French / Italian, French / Spanish, Italian / French, Italian / Spanish, Spanish / French, Spanish / Italian). The contents from the areas of linguistics, literary studies and cultural studies are deepened - always with a view to the selected languages.

The students learn to classify linguistic and literary problems in the Romance research landscape. For the corresponding language areas, political systems, economic and social structures as well as media landscapes and educational systems in the past and present are considered. The master’s course can be studied as a single-subject master’s degree, or in combination with the supplementary area of ??art history.
