Profile of the programme academical
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples Even though an ideal graduate should be a "scientist" able to sustain the continuity of the discipline, we do not forgo pragmatic results. A thoroughly educated philologist is prepared to be employed in any occupation connected with the knowledge of German: interpreting, translating, foreign-language management, work in archives, libraries or cultural organizations such as publishing houses, editor's offices, broadcasting etc. Our graduates can exercise these jobs better than a graduate of pragmatic study fields since they were trained to work independently with texts. With the pedagogical qualification certificate the graduate is entitled to teach German at all secondary schools.
