In addition to learning the Spanish language, this course focuses on the acquisition of cultural-region-specific expertise. Through methods and theories from linguistics, literature and cultural studies, you will learn to systematically analyse and reflect upon cultural products and processes. In two voluntary semesters abroad, you can gain intensive experiences with regard to the living environment and the cultural special features of the foreign country and apply academic questions on the spot. With the help of the supervising professor, you will map out interests and questions relating to the place of study abroad, which will be used for independent research to compile a collection of materials with a linguistic or literary and cultural-region-specific focus, culminating in a field report.


In the context of the academic and practical linguistic education, the minor subject is aligned to the professional fields of cultural, textual and public relations work with regard to the Spanish-speaking world.

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.
