The Master of Arts degree programme provides graduates with an in-depth knowledge of Slavic Studies. In addition to excellent intercultural and communicative competence in Russian and a second Slavic language, this course of study enables students to develop in-depth understanding of the history and structure of the Slavic languages. At the same time, students acquire a comprehensive understanding of Russian and another literature of the Slavic-speaking world, including its historical and cultural background. Furthermore, students gain first-hand experience of workshops or conferences, as well as undertaking research or practical work in a Slavic-speaking country. Thus this M.A. programme strengthens their capabilities as independent young researchers. Familiarisation with theoretical approaches to linguistics, literary and cultural studies (literary history, gender studies, sociolinguistics, etc.) allows students to further develop the skills necessary for reading and analysing literary texts and linguistic data. The over-arching objective of the M.A. is to enable students to become experts in linguistic, literary and cultural developments specific to the Slavic-speaking world.

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.
