Semitic Studies is a linguistic and literary discipline that deals with the study of the Semitic languages. You will get an informed insight into these by learning a Semitic language and through specialised modules on linguistic and philological methodology. This minor subject is particularly suitable for combining with major subjects in which a Semitic language such as Arabic, Akkadian or Hebrew is taught.


One possible professional field is the vast sector of media journalism (film and television criticism, science journalism), which is inconceivable without a well-founded historical knowledge, an analysis of prominent examples and a knowledge and application of the most important media theories. Other possible fields range from a broadcaster’s television play editorial department, the supervision of a cultural magazine on the radio, work at a production company and the supervision of film projects to the field of culture management and public relations and educational work.

A minor subject will help you to extend your professional qualifications profile, which is decisively shaped by the choice of your major subject. In conjunction with your major subject, your relevant work experience (e.g. internships, part-time jobs, voluntary work) and your personal skills, it will enable you to refine your profile and carve out your own individual array of career options.
