German

The German language is not just a means of expression. You use it every day, whether you know it or not. Life without language is inconceivable – in the end you may even dream in German. And yet very few of us are aware of this; consider its structure and composition; consciously experience the beauty of literature or understand its origins and development. Discover the often hidden beauty of German!

The focus of the field of German in research, instruction, and studies is the German language and literature from their beginnings to the present in their historical and sociocultural context. The area of linguistics covers the German language, its history, and its current state of development on the basis of theories of language and communication. The area of literature covers the history of German literature on the basis of literary theories. The Department of German is divided into two sections: the Department of German I concentrates on the German language and medieval German literature, and the Department of German II focuses on German literature from the early modern period to the present.

An overview of all the subjects that can be taken in combination with subject German by students who started their Polyvalent dual-major bachelor's degree program in the winter semester 2015/16 or later:

It is possible to study music at the University of Music in Freiburg and art at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe. Make sure to inquire about the admission requirements at these institutions before deciding on these fields. You may combine any teaching degree field with either of these two artistic fields. However, it is not possible to combine music and art.
Please also note that it is not possible to be admitted as a student teacher with a combination of any of the following fields: Catholic theology, Protestant theology, Jewish theology, Islamic religious studies. It is not possible to combine one of these fields with philosophy/ethics either.

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
