What will I learn?
The BSc degree course in Linguistics imparts many aspects with which linguists deal academically: (1) Natural sciences/cognitive science (the production and processing of signals; theoretical and experimental modelling of linguistic knowledge and its healthy and impaired acquisition and use, incl. neurophysiological basics). (2) Cultural studies/humanities (languages as historic phenomena, examination of linguistic change, language mixture and the relations of loanwords). (3) Social sciences (language as a tool of social performance). The BA degree course in Linguistics offers students the possibility to specialize in either the field of General and Diachronic Linguistics (theoretical modelling of linguistic knowledge with a focus on syntax and semantics; language history) or in the field of Psycho-, Neuro- and Clinical Linguistics (experimental modelling of linguistic knowledge; language acquisition and disorders).

Which career opportunities do I have?
Linguistics’ relevance as a fundamental science for all sciences dealing with language cannot be estimated high enough. The field of Linguistics provides the theoretical basics for its related subjects and allows them to work with language in a scientific way. Thus, graduates in Linguistics are important driving forces for many sciences. Due to the large number of linguistic research areas and fields of application, linguists can choose from a wide range of occupations and there is no standard career. Occupations for Linguistics graduates include an academic career, adult education, language and communication technology, lexicography, publishing, media work, public administration, international organisations, service industries (e.g., libraries, archives, PR, the standardization/planning of language, pre-school language classes, speech therapy.
