Culture and Economics/French Studies (Bachelor)

This page contains automatically translated content.

Combining foreign language, culture and business: The bachelor's degree program "Culture and Business/Francophone Studies" makes this possible. In six semesters, students not only deal intensively with language, literature and the history of francophone countries, but are also taught business and economics.

The program combines French language, literature, culture and regional studies with an in-depth study of economics. In the area of "Culture and Language", students can choose between two different concentrations: "Transformation Processes" or "Intercultural Communication". The program is characterized by its high practical component. In practical and project modules, students learn to work independently and in an interdisciplinary manner. A stay abroad is an integral part of the curriculum - either as a study semester or as an internship of at least eight weeks in a francophone country. A double degree program with the related degree program "Culture and Business/Hispanic Studies" is an option due to many common modules.

Probably the most important prerequisite for the program is an enthusiasm for Romance languages - in this case French. Sufficient language skills (language level B1/GER) must be proven before beginning the study program. For the economics part, a good understanding of mathematics and economic contexts as well as analytical thinking skills are required.

In the video, instructors present the program in detail.
