Multilingualism and Foreign Language Teaching, University of Fribourg
The area of study “Multilingualism and Foreign Language Teaching” offers several study programs at the Bachelor’s and Master’s level as well as a Doctoral programme. The study programs are interconnected in several ways and offer students numerous areas to specialise in. A wide range of core elective courses from their own area of specialisation as well as from other areas of study enable students to expand their knowledge by engaging in in-depth and interdisciplinary study.
All study programs in this area share the philosophy that language skills in native languages as well as in second and foreign languages can only be researched, understood and promoted by means of a holistic multilingual model. When dealing with language in this area, we consider aspects of language use and language learning from a linguistic, social, cultural and psychological standpoint.
