Key learning outcomes The double-major degree programme of General Linguistics introduces its students to central linguistic subdisciplines. It includes, above all, courses of: History of Linguistics, General Linguistics, Theory of Grammar and Current Approaches to Theory of Grammar. The cross-disciplinary nature of General Linguistics is ensured by the obligatory courses: Semiotics and Philosophy of Science. Given the other degree programme, previous study or one's own deeper interest, the student chooses his or her specialization, which determines at the same time the choice of the diploma thesis topic and the range of optional courses. The study programme enables the student to specialize in any of cross-disciplinary linguistic disciplines on top of pure linguistic fields. The student may also choose an individual specialization after an agreement with the diploma thesis supervisor. The student's specialization, furthermore, determines state final examination topics. The programme courses are designed so that the student are able to link the knowledge gained and research, and managed to verify it using some chosen texts. Students participate in the scholarly and research activities of the department. They take part in elaborating department publications, in collaborating with foreign partners etc.
