doc. Mgr. Aleš Urválek, Ph.D.
Follow-up Master's degree inform. The language of instruction is Czech.
The programme can be studied as a single subject with a specialization (German culture studies, German linguistics or German literature) or in combination with another programme.
The aim of the study of German Language and Literature is to develop and deepen the knowledge and skills the students received in the previous studies, especially with respect to the philologic reflexion of language and literature in the broader context of history and culture.
Students will focus on the broader context of the relevant disciplines in German studies; these include wider diachronous aspects of linguistic research, a more advanced level of syntax, lexicology, and stylistics; in literary criticism the students will get deeper insight into modern and contemporary literature and into the methodology of literary scholarship, as well as an awareness of the wider context of literature and the place of German literature within it.
Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan. Selected project-oriented facultative courses offer opportunities for the students to train in the practical usage of theoretical knowledge and develop further praxis-related skills.
Graduates with this degree are qualified for expert and language-oriented jobs in companies and institutions, in publishing houses and various branches of the media, and in archives, libraries, museums, theatres, and travel agencies, as language experts and alternatively in diplomacy.
