Foreign Languages, Stays Abroad and International Exchange

Board spelling Ausland, the German term for abroad Copyright: © Bilder Zentrale_Tafel Ausland

The three foreign-language components English and American Studies, French and Spanish make the study-program particularly suitable for those interested in going international. The acquisition of foreign language skills is also obligatory in the supplementary area.


In addition, a stay abroad of at least six weeks is a further component of the Bachelor's programme in Literature and Linguistics. This stay can be completed before or during your course of study. Stays that can be recognised are, for example, voluntary services, internships, attendance at a foreign university or professional activities. We would like to encourage all of our students to apply for a semester abroad at one of our partner universities.
