Bosnian/Croat/Serbian Bachelor's programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The bachelor’s programme Bosnian/Croat/Serbian (B/C/S) encompasses practical language studies and three other scientific areas conveying the language, culture and literature of the B/C/S region. Students are trained in the following subject areas: linguistics (structure, functions, varieties of the target language); literature (history of literature, theory and methods of analysis, oral popular literature, journalism, TV, film and Internet); cultural science (historical, social, political and cultural development, artifacts, cultural theories and methods). This course conveys the specific knowledge and scientific skills needed for working with traditional and new media in order to collect information.  Students are trained to act and think independently, responsibly and critically. It is recommended to study in the B/C/S region for a certain time during this course. Experiencing different cultural and social circumstances helps students to develop troubleshooting competences and intercultural communication skills.

Expected results

Undergraduates of the bachelor’s programme Bosnian/Croat/Serbian will have a command of the language/s at B2 level according to CEFR, and of a further Slavonic language at A1 level. Students will be capable of increasing their knowledge in the areas of literature, linguistics and cultural science as well as of improving their own linguistic competences independently. Furthermore, the undergraduates possess important key qualifications and soft skills such as the ability to express themselves accurately both in written and oral form, to work in an independent and target-oriented manner, to work in a team and to understand social, economic and cultural-political processes. Furthermore, students will also possess the basic skills needed for a dialogue with other cultures, as well as tolerance and openness.
