Core modules are intercultural communication, second language acquisition, language processing and translation studies. In these modules, a closer look is taken at aspects of interpersonal communication, regional and social differences in language behavior, (im)politeness theory in different cultures, pragmatic competence, writing in a second language and cognitive processes during translation, among others. The Applied Linguistics programme of the University of Bonn furthermore offers teaching and research support in the fields of pragmatics, discourse analysis, genre analysis, sociolinguistics, dialectology, cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics and theoretical lexicography.
Students learn to plan and carry out their own research projects, for which they have access to linguistic research facilities, such as the Research Center for Empirical Pragmatics, which offers a large variety of research instruments including recording devices, language corpora and data collection, data processing and data analysis software.
