Minor: Ancient Near Eastern Languages (30 ECTS-Credits)
Prerequisites for registration: (1) The Minor "Ancient Near Eastern Languages" covering 30 ECTS-Credits can be selected by regular degree students of bachelor's and diploma programmes at the University of Innsbruck if the respective curriculum provides for the opportunity to pass a Minor. (2) The individual modules and courses of the Minor "Ancient Near Eastern Languages" may be passed providing the availability of places.
Learning Outcome: Graduates of the Minor "Ancient Near Eastern Languages" are able to present and independently use theories and tools of historical language research and philology. On the basis of their acquired and deepened language competences, they can classify different languages of the Ancient Near East and its contact zones and independently describe and edit them linguistically and philologically. They recognise the cultural and socio-political backgrounds of the emergence and spread of various ancient oriental writing systems. They can derive and analyse commonalities and differences as well as the underlying diachronic and synchronic language change processes from the languages and language families dealt with. They sharpen their logical thinking and broaden their sensibility and understanding for foreign ways of expression through the confrontation with foreign cultures and forms of society.
