The Master of General and Applied Linguistics ("Master für Allgemeine und Angewandte Sprachwissenschaft", abbreviated as MAAS) allows you to attend modules offered by five different linguistics divisions at the University of Würzburg, namely German Linguistics, English Linguistics, Romance Linguistics, Slavic Linguistics and Comparative Linguistics. This means that students can specialise within this Master programme, either combining modules offered by different departments or focussing on one language. Please note that the courses offered by the English Linguistics department are taught in English, some courses offered by Romance Linguistics are partially taught in French, Spanish or Italian, while all the other courses are taught in German.
Depending on the size of the departments, the number of modules that can be selected for the Master of General and Applied Linguistics varies. Students often combine courses from different linguistics departments in their Master programme.
Please note that German language proficiency is one of the admission requirements for the MAAS programme of study.
