We take a deliberately interdisciplinary approach in the Master Programme, introducing topics essential for a broad understanding of language use in its social context, including, in addition to sociolinguistics itself, relevant aspects of, for example, psycholinguistics and second language acquisition
Sociolinguistics is taught at the Center for the Study of Language and Society (CSLS ), an interdisciplinary research centre composed of the following Departments: English, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Slavic Linguistics.
These Departments offer courses from which students can design a programme that both meets their own individual research interests and addresses their specific professional objectives. Depending on the Department, courses take place in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish.
No work experience is required.
