The major field program in German Studies has three areas of concentration: The linguistic component of the program deals with the structure and development of the German language, its variants and varieties (dialects, registers, styles), its use in texts and in oral interaction, and its cognitive processing. The area “modern German literature” covers German literature from the 16th century to the present. The texts are analyzed within the context of historical and sociocultural issues and comparative aspects as well as current approaches of literary theory and media theory are considered. The focus of the area “medieval German literature and language“ is the history of German literature from the beginnings to the 16th century in its historical and sociocultural context as well as previous stages in the history of the language. Students of the program must have an excellent command of written and spoken German. Another prerequisite is the ability to read secondary literature in foreign languages, particularly English.

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.
