BA / MA as of HS 2019

Principle Aims

A bachelor's degree (in this case, "Bachelor of Arts", BA) is a primary professional qualification, while a master's degree (in this case, "Master of Arts", MA) is intended to establish to a deeper scientific understanding of the subject field. This (politically determined) separation can, however, only be implemented in very few subjects.

We try to implement this distinction in such a way that the established knowledge and skills in the field of computational linguistics are a major focus and can be used directly (e.g. in the languages being studied) in the BA. In the MA, the major focus is on the more theoretical processes and research questions to open problems.
