A minor in Turkish entails intensive training in this language, which is fundamental to exploring topics featured in a major in Asian Studies with profile in either Islamic studies or Turkish history and society. Moreover, Turkish offers other application aspects that make it attractive as a minor for students who have chosen other profiles for their Asian Studies major.

The minor in Turkish encompasses three language modules (Turkish I-III). The language courses of the Department of Oriental and Asian Studies (IOA) emphasize the skills of listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. In addition, every module features e-learning units related to specific content in the modules which students work through on their own. The courses of the Turkish minor include all practical language tutorials in which students learn Turkish both in theory and in practice using suitable foreign language teaching methods and approaches.

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.
