This Master’s Degree is a continuation of the Bachelor’s Degree in German and progressively deepens the skills acquired at undergraduate level, while opening up new perspectives, particularly in terms of self-study. Student numbers are small, so students and early-career researchers benefit from personalized and regular follow-up combined with the opportunity to conduct differentiated studies according to the student’s preferred research areas. Classes involving input from industry professionals are common to the entire LLCER specialization. Most modules in the German Studies pathway are taught in German.
