Trinational Master in Literature, Culture and Linguistic History of the German-Speaking World

Courses at the three universities are coordinated with each other and, if possible, concentrated on one or two weekdays per location. Students choose a home university from the three universities and also take courses at the partner universities. In this way, they experience three academic cultures at the same time - a clear advantage over traditional Masters in German Studies.

The possibility to individually design the course of studies contributes to further specific training. For this purpose, students can choose from ten subject specialisations:

  • Literature and culture of the 19th to 21st centuries (Luxembourg, Metz, Saarbrücken)
  • Synchronic Linguistics (Luxembourg, Metz, Saarbrücken)
  • Old German Literature and Linguistic History (Luxembourg, Saarbrücken)
  • Literature and Culture of the Early Modern Period (16th to 18th century) (Saarbrücken)
  • "Civilisation" and "Historie des idées" of the 19th to 21st centuries (Metz)
  • Literature and culture of Austria (Metz, Saarbrücken)
  • Culture, Literature and Language in the SaarLorLux Region (Luxembourg, Saarbrücken)
  • "Traduction" (Metz, Saarbrücken)
  • German as a Foreign Language (Saarbrücken)
  • Speech Science and Speech Education (Saarbrücken)

The programme consists of a total of 17 modules:

  • 5 modules on central areas of the subject (history of literature, synchronic linguistics, cultural and media theory).
  • 3 compulsory methodological seminars
  • 4 modules in the area of specialisation
  • 3 freely selectable modules in the area of options/professionalisation
  • Research colloquium
  • Master's thesis

Students who have earned at least 30 credit points at one of the three participating universities receive a degree from that university. In principle, it is possible to complete the degree programme trinationally, binationally or also nationally.
