Minor: Language - Space - Society (30 ECTS-Credits)
Learning Outcome: Graduates of the Minor "Language - Space - Society" know the basic theories and methods of sociolinguistics, human geography, European ethnology, history or sociology. They understand language as a social phenomenon and can recognise, reflect and analyse processes of social transformation in the context of their socio-spatial anchoring. They know about the importance of social and regional spaces for the development of social relations and cultural conflicts. They are able to describe and critically question the mutual relationship between language, space and society on the basis of scientific methods and theories. They can relate the knowledge they have acquired to their own field of study and thus expand their ability to reflect on social processes.

Learning Outcome: The students can reproduce the essential theoretical approaches of interpretative sociology and explain their basic terminology.

In particular, they are able to critically discuss identity constructions in the context of social misconception and recognition based on sociological identity theories as well as theoretical impulses from related fields. They can identify central theses and lines of argument and reproduce them without falsification. In addition, they are able to apply theoretical concepts to empirical phenomena as an example of research.
