Why study German BA - German Language and Linguistics Concentration at UB?

This concentration offers a unique program which combines studies in linguistics and advanced-level studies in German and is intended for students who wish to pursue the study of linguistics as well as achieve advanced-level proficiency and gain linguistic understanding of German. Majors in this concentration develop appreciation of general properties of language in general and German in particular, and develop competence in linguistic analysis of German.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of all requirements, the students are expected to acquire advanced-level proficiency in German in the four areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and cultural knowledge and understanding desired for the target level of proficiency. Also, the students will have the following knowledge in linguistics.

  • Core concepts: Students will comprehend the core concepts of linguistics, as well as the basic literature that assumes such concepts.
  • Critical thinking: Students will master the ability to construct arguments for choosing between alternative analyses of linguistic phenomena and to identify relevant data bearing on the analyses.
  • Problem solving: Students will be able to analyze linguistic data and to construct descriptions of particular linguistic phenomena in German.
  • Communication skills: Students will attain the skills necessary to prepare written and oral presentations on linguistic topics.

Career Outlook

Students completing a BA in Linguistics most often continue in graduate programs, either in linguistics, teaching English as a second language, or cognitive science. Our students have also gone on to law school, and medical school, and have done graduate work in library sciences. Students who have not pursued graduate work have found employment teaching English overseas and this concentration is particularly relevant for employment in Germany. Our students have also been employed in the fields of publishing, literacy development, marketing, public service organizations, and language technology.
