What will I learn?

The BA degree course in Language – Economy – Culture combines economical, foreign-language and intercultural competences. Students can choose between a Romance (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish) or a Slavonic language (Polish, Russian, Czech) and acquire language skills as well as practical skills from the disciplines of cultural studies and business administration. By deliberately uniting core competences from the humanities and economics, and due to a distinct orientation towards practical application and an international approach, students are provided with an ideal basis for both a direct entry into the working world and for a further academic education. The comprehensive interdisciplinarity and an emphasis on practical experience make this course a unique possibility to combine the qualities of linguistics, literary and cultural studies with the skills of business administration and economics.

Which career opportunities do I have?

The interdisciplinary competences imparted in the BA degree course in Language – Economy – Culture and the individual possibilities of specialization make graduates attractive for a broad range of public and private institutions. On the one hand, due to their competences in linguistics, literary and cultural studies, graduates can work in occupations such as culture management, journalism, publishing and science; on the other hand, due to the economic education and the course's emphasis on practical experience, graduates can directly enter businesses of all kinds.

Why Salzburg?

Being one of the most attractive universities in Europe, with the BA degree course in Language – Economy – Culture the University of Salzburg puts a new emphasis in the Austrian academic landscape. In this new Bachelor's course, students profit from high-quality teaching in small groups, individual supervision, close networking of the involved disciplines of literary studies, linguistics, cultural studies and economics, the international approach and innovative interdisciplinarity. In a historic atmosphere which is unique in its landscape and architecture, the city of Salzburg offers its students numerous cultural activities as well as sports and leisure facilities. Salzburg is also particularly attractive due to its large number of Erasmus and non-European partnerships (amongst others, with Brazil, Estonia, France, Italy, Mexico, Nicaragua, Portugal, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, the Czech Republic).
