This is a new MA programm beginning WS 2018/19.
The Master African Languages and Cultures is a research-oriented program with a strong connection to applied issues focusing on theories and methods in linguistics of African languages, language in African cultures and Ethiopian Studies. Graduates with an M.A. in African Languages and Cultures are well prepared for a position in research, education and consulting. By extending language skills in Swahili, Hausa or Amharic, or learning a further African language, you will extend as well your comprehension from local ‘doing things with words’ to traditional knowledge and philological methods in order to develop your own capacity of working autonomously with primary sources of language data, oral and written history, literatures, cultures, and religions in their relevant context.
