The minor in Tibetan consists of three language modules (Tibetan I-III) From semester one the Department of Oriental and Asian Studies (IOA) teaches students both the spoken language and the Tibetan script. In the third semester they learn classical written Tibetan. Students learn to express themselves in Tibetan and independently read, understand, and reflect on simple texts. In addition, they acquire intercultural competencies that enable them to study topics across disciplines. 

The IOA also organizes excursions and a Tibet colloquium, to which it invites IOA scholars to exchange their ideas with regard to ongoing research projects related to Tibet.

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.)

Job options strongly depend on a graduate’s chosen major.

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.
