European Minority Languages


Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)


English B2


One in seven Europeans speaks a minority language or a lesser used language, most of whose existence is threatened. This is also the case for Upper and Lower Sorbian – spoken in Saxony and Brandenburg and taught academically only at Leipzig University – as well as for Celtic languages in the UK and France.

By combining Leipzig University’s and the University of Szczecin’s strengths in Sorabian and Celtic Studies, this study programme offers its students a unique education while staying relevant to the labour market.

Students will acquire international experience (with corresponding language and social skills), experience in classes taught in a foreign language, useful skills in science management, and profound knowledge of two official EU languages, namely Polish and English, as well as two minority languages, e. g. Sorbian and Irish.
Students who begin their studies in Leipzig will spend the first two years at their home university and the final year at the partner university in Szczecin. The opportunity of going abroad will provide the students with a broad spectrum of language, cultural, political and social skills. Overall, this programme contributes to training internationally sought-after multilingual experts who are competent in intercultural and socio-scientific matters.
