Bachelor of Arts


The minor in Mongolian consists of three language modules (Mongolian I-III) Students learn modern Mongolian (Chalcha) from the first semester with practice- and application-oriented training. They acquire skills in listening comprehension, speaking, reading and writing, and intercultural communication. In the third semester they are introduced to the classical Mongolian script. In all language courses, students practice the use of language-learning aids and also work through contrastive examples. Already quite soon in their studies, students are able to express opinions orally and in writing about familiar topics, which enables them to get by in a Mongolian-speaking environment.

The Department of Oriental and Asian Studies is careful to maintain a balance in language instruction between pragmatic/communicative competence and linguistic fundamentals. Students acquire culturally sensitized, communicative and media-relevant competencies which enable them to understand phenomena and dynamics in the Mongolian cultural area and relate them to trans-disciplinary topics.

This subject must be combined with a second subject.


Possible lines of work:

Intercultural communication, intercultural management, international development cooperation, peace and conflict research, international educational work (adult education, language courses, etc.), politics (policy consulting), culture (conservation/maintenance/management of global cultural heritage, cultural institutions, culture management, museums, etc.), tourism (long-distance, educational and cultural tourism), journalism, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
