Southeast Asian Studies

The bachelor's degree program Southeast Asian Studies in the dual-subject option is half study of the region with a social scientific and ethnological orientation and half language and linguistics. Students in this program learn either Indonesian or Vietnamese. Moreover, the program is application-oriented. Their initial language skills and content-based modules enable students in various occupational fields to understand and analyze social developments and their contexts in the region in an interculturally competent and flexible manner. Students also learn the fundamentals of scientific work.

In addition to the Southeast Asian studies content per se, students also acquire intercultural competence and in general the ability to work through questions scientifically and methodically, thinking critically and reflectively.

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.
