Subject-specific German course for international students


Are you studying a subject of social sciences in the Master´s degree programme?

Nice that you have decided to study here in Göttingen.

For linguistic support, we offer you a special German course, especially in the first semester. It takes place twice a week during the lecture period. The special feature of this course is the combination of language and science courses, which means that we deal with the German language and also with the techniques of scientific work in the social sciences. The focus is on specific characteristics of scientific writing in the social sciences. Further contents are differences in the scientific cultures, the preparation and holding of a presentation, arguing & discussion, further study techniques as well as typical formulations in scientific German.
