Study structure

The content on this page was translated automatically.


A degree program consists of modules that are defined in the examination regulations and described in more detail in the module handbook. In terms of content and time, it makes sense to study these modules in a certain order. For each degree program, there is a sample study plan that shows you an ideal typical course. If you study in this way, you will be able to complete your studies in the standard period of study. This is not always possible, so there may be individual deviations from the suggested sequence. When planning, you should bear in mind that not every module is offered in the winter and summer semesters and that some modules necessarily build on each other or have other participation requirements. The student advisor will support you in the individual organization of your studies.

The study of "Intercultural Communication and Business" is composed of the following areas:

Students deepen their knowledge of foreign languages and, among other things, build their ability to understand and compose complex texts.

Module 1a: French
Module 1b and 1c: Spanish

Module 2: Space and Culture
This module is devoted to, among other things, the political, economic, social and cultural structures, tendencies and developments in the French- or Spanish-speaking regions. These are reflected upon, analyzed and critically discussed, and different culturally specific perspectives on historical and current events are interpreted.

Module 3 Language and Culture
Students take a seminar on literature and cultural studies as well as a seminar on linguistics.

Students have the choice between a research-oriented or a practice-oriented module:

Module F4: Research Project
Independent exploration of a research field in either linguistics or literary studies.

Module P4: Practice Project
Conception and implementation of a practice day. Students deal with their own professional qualification and further develop, among other things, moderation and mediation skills.

Students supplement subject-specific knowledge in this module by developing their skills in seminars and exercises, e.g. in scientific research or applied knowledge transfer. The university offers a variety of seminars in the area of key competencies and methods.

In the context of a Master's thesis, students apply the knowledge they have gained in their studies to the independent treatment of a topic in philology or cultural studies or an application-related problem in economics.
