Admission Requirements In order to be admitted to the Master's degree course
in Romance Language Sciences, students must hold a
Bachelor's degree in a related field (Romance Studies
or Linguistics with a specialization in Romance languages)
from another accredited inland or international institution
of higher education.

What will I learn?

In the MA degree course in Romance Language Sciences, students intensify their basic knowledge of (Romance) linguistics acquired during their BA degree course in two Romance languages (students can choose between French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish). Students learn about the subject areas, theories and methodologies of Romance language sciences, which, at the same time, prepares them for a PhD degree course. The extensive course offer of the linguistic and philological departments at the University of Salzburg allows students to specialize in all relevant fields of linguistics: phonetics/phonology, morphology/word formation, syntax, (variational) sociolinguistics, textlinguistics and pragmalinguistics, etc. Moreover, students develop their intercultural competences and hone their language skills in their chosen Romance languages.

Which career opportunities do I have?

Graduates of the MA degree course in Romance Language Sciences are able to choose from a wide range of occupations: academic research and teaching, adult education in the fields of foreign languages, academic library work and publishing (e.g., expert editing, acceptance, programming); language and culture mediation; translation in the media/advertising industry and PR (economy, tourism, international organisations).

Why Salzburg?

The Paris Lodron University is a medium-sized university with an excellent student-to-staff ratio, especially in philological/linguistic subjects. The interdisciplinary cooperation of lecturers supports the quality of the linguistic teaching in a special way.

    Due to the current situation personal contact with the Psychological Counseling Center is not possible at the moment. We are however available by e-mail, telephone, chat or video chat. Unfortunately, our normal range of workshops cannot take place in the usual way. We would however like to offer the following webinars as an alternative.
    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester. Courses and exams held in lecture halls and seminar rooms will not be possible, with exception to some special exams. Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters. Please note that these regulations have been set for a limited time period (i.e. for this semester, but sometimes even beyond this).
