For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree with at least 20 credit points in German literary studies as well as in linguistics.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The master’s program ‘German as a Foreign Language: Teaching Culture’ focuses both on the linguistic level of language teaching and on topics and methods of teaching the literature and culture of the German-speaking world. A maximum of 25 students are admitted per year. An important part of the study program is a semester abroad at a partner university of Freie Universität Berlin where the students can take seminars and develop, engage in, and reflect on their own teaching.
