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.

    During games when there are no fans in local football stadiums, deep acoustic insights into the inner workings of coaches can clearly be heard in TV broadcasts, due to the lack of background noise.Nevertheless, emotional outbursts and arguments among players and coaches have decreased considerably overall, in corona-related “behind closed door matches". Salzburg researchers calculated this using the example of games at FC Red Bull Salzburg. In contrast, more goals were scored across Austria.
