Annotation

The research-oriented degree course in Language – Media – Society combines a cultural-scientific and comparative perspective on language and mediality in their social conditionality with a focus on Europe. The degree course addresses various communication contexts (everyday life, institutions, audio-visual media), communicative and aesthetic practices (oral and written, monomodal and multimodal, analogue and digital), forms of discourse (everyday conversation, text, audio-visuality, political and public discourse) and societal structures (power relations, affiliations and diversity). The focus is particularly on the use and medialities of different languages and language varieties in Europe. Aspects of intercultural communication are dealt with against the background of linguistic diversity, multilingualism and culturally varying language structures and forms of communication. In addition to the broad-based MA degree course in Language – Media – Society, the various specialised tracks of the MA degree course in Linguistic Research as well as the double degrees "Intercultural Communication" (MICS) and "Multimodality – Discourse – Media" (MuDiM) - can be studied. With their specialised knowledge, methodological skills and in-depth language skills in at least two foreign languages, graduates of the Master's degree course have access to a wide range of professional activities. The Master's degree programme "Language - Media - Society" prepares students for communication-intensive professional fields with a European or international orientation, including media work in the European and international arena, international journalism, public relations in international institutions, NGOs, cultural institutions, university and science management, intercultural didactics, academic professions, research or doctoral studies.
