Course-specific competences



All acquired course-specific competences enable the students to apply directly expert knowledge, skills and values which they develop during the study through different teaching methods.

Course-specific competences are listed in each syllabus in the chapter “objectives and competences”. Course-specific competences at study completion may vary from student to student due to individual elective course selection. The general course-specific competences developed by the proposed programme can be resumed in the following list:

Students of the 3rd cycle study programme Languages and Interculturality gain in-depth knowledge in their field of interest as well as in methodological approaches which will enable them to research these fields. Their job opportunities are potentially in all employment areas where large general knowledge and acquaintance with social and cultural issues, phenomena and processes is required should this be on local, national or international level. The ability to interpret the results autonomously, evaluate and work independently, self-critically, using self-reflection, striving for quality and strong commitment to professional ethics and ethic codexes makes out of the students able researchers, analytics, collaborators at development departments, counselors, leader staff of social activities at cultural and educational institutions.  Students are trained in particular for the following working areas: 

  • scientific, research and pedagogical work in scientific and educational institutions in relation to languages, interculturality and interdisciplinary studies;
