The Master’s degree programme in German and English Linguistics at Leibniz University Hannover is based on a cooperation between the German and English departments at Leibniz Universität Hannover. 


The bilingual concept and implementation of the degree programme is innovative. Courses are held in German and English; students can choose to write their Master’s thesis in either language. In the compulsory elective area, students can opt to focus on one of the two languages, or to study both equally.

During the German and English Linguistics at Leibniz University Hannover, students explore and learn about the development, structure and use of the German and English languages. The subject matter of the degree programme is the current structure and use of the German and English languages (standard varieties as well as regional and social varieties) taking into account the historical and socio-cultural context as well as linguistic contact. Research methodology knowledge and skills are also taught. In addition to acquiring research-oriented qualifications, students on this degree programme can also gain application-oriented knowledge and skills in fields of practice such as language teaching and media communication.
