Minor: Language - Space - Society (30 ECTS-Credits)
Prerequisites for registration: The minor "Language - Space - Society" covering 30 ECTS-Credits may be selected by regular degree students of bachelor's programmes at the University of Innsbruck, if the respective curriculum provides the possibility to pass a minor. The individual modules and courses of the Minor "Language - Space - Society" may be studied, providing the availability of places.
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.
