Information for first semester students
We would like to welcome you personally to the winter semester 2020/21. But unfortunately this is not possible due to the Corona Pandemic.
In your planning, you can assume that all courses of our study programmes (BA Language Science, BSc Computational Linguistics, MA Translation Science and Technology, MSc Language Science and Technology, MSc Language and Communication Technologies) of the coming winter semester will be offered online. (Presence) examinations will not take place before the beginning of February 2021.
We will most likely offer an (online) orientation session for first semester students in mid-October. If you have any questions regarding the start of your studies in advance, please contact us:
- BA Language Science, MA Translation Science and Technology: Ulrike Konz
- BSc Computational Linguistics, MSc Language Science and Technology, MSc Language and Communication Technologies: Dr. Stefan Thater
You are welcome to leave your e-mail address here if you would like to be kept informed about any changes in the planning of the teaching.
And best prepared for the digital age?
The demand for professional translators is constantly increasing worldwide, also and especially because of the enormous development in the field of machine translation.
People who can deal with language, translation and also language technology professionally and on a scientific basis are in demand!
Highly integrated translator training
The curriculum of the MA Translation Science and Technology, which is unique and innovative in Germany, is oriented towards the latest developments in the digitisation of language and machine translation as well as the high demands of professional practice. One focus of the Saarbrücken MA programme is on the latest findings and methods in language technology and empirical research.
Here you have the opportunity to qualify for modern and future-oriented work processes in multilingual communication and for research content and methods of applied linguistics and translation science.
