Language, Literature, Mediation
Please note: The programme is taught in German.
For enrolment and successful studies, you need knowledge of German at least at level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for most undergraduate study programmes, and at least level C1 for some undergraduate study programmes. If you have any questions concerning your intended Bachelor study programme, the Student Advisory Service and Subject Advisory Service are available to you.
German Language and Literature at the University of Bamberg is about more than just ‘good’ literature, ‘correct’ language, old books and new orthographic rules. Its various sub-disciplines – Modern German Literature, Medieval German Literature, German Linguistics and Didactics of German Language and Literature – focus on contemporary and historical German language, literature, media and culture from a theoretical, analytical and practical perspective and on ways in which schools and cultural institutions can convey these topics effectively. This academically rigorous programme teaches you to reflect methodically on language, grammar, communication and language-based media. You also learn to conduct research, evaluate sources and information, and structure and present knowledge.
The teacher training programme is largely compatible with the bachelor's degree programme. Teacher education students can also acquire a bachelor’s degree in German Language and Literature. Similarly, work completed for the bachelor's degree programme can easily be credited towards a teacher education course.
