The degree course’s curriculum includes compulsory semesters of study abroad at the partner university. The modularised curricula are cross-disciplinary and their contents coincide with the courses taking place at the other institution. Students gain in-depth knowledge of modern theories and methods in the field of German linguistics and communication science. They learn how to use subject and context-specific methods of analysis in various linguistic and communicational situations.
The students profit in particular from the specific research profile and the universities’ varying approaches to the subject area. The new degree course promotes the internationalisation of studies and the international mobility of the students. The degree that is issued by both of the universities specifically qualifies students for careers in international contexts. Future jobs could be found in the fields of public relations, marketing, journalism, media coverage and research.
The double degree programme is a result of the several years of partnership between the universities in St. Petersburg and Greifswald. The foundation was laid by the collaboration between Greifswald’s Department of German Philology and the Chair of German Philology at the St. Petersburg University, which received funding from the DAAD between 2016 and 2018 as a departmental partnership in the field of German language and literature.
The degree course makes a contribution to German-Russian relations in science, culture and tertiary education. It shall help to advance German linguistics and the German language in Russia.
