The Institute for Linguistics and Literature at TU Darmstadt invites applications for the Master of Arts (M.A.) in Data and Discourse Studies.
The Data and Discourse Studies programme examines the relationship between language, knowledge and society. The aim is to impart methodological competence in dealing with digital research data in the humanities and social sciences. These research data are primarily linguistic and visual data – texts and images. In view of the ever-increasing amount of data, there is a growing need for methods that not only measure and categorise the data but also explain and interpret it.
The data and discourse cloud provides resources, tools, tutorials, and online courses for digital and collaborative data analysis. It enables students to deepen their knowledge of specific topics related to their studies and to share and discuss their insights online.
Requirements for admission to the Master’s degree programme (and thereby university enrolment) are comprised of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in one of the following disciplines: history, linguistics, literary studies, philosophy, political science, sociology, or a related subject.
Admission to the Master’s degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. Good knowledge of English is required for admission to this programme of study.
