Information on the areas of specialisation:
Computer Philology looks into questions of media-based and digital rendering of texts from literary and cultural contexts. This regards, among others, the medial aspects of texts and their digital rendering in editions, and computer-aided search in larger texts.
Corpus and Computer-based Linguistics have at their core the computer-aided analysis of linguistic data bases, the so-called corpora. Students learn the systematic and reproductable analysis of linguistic questions.
The programme is completed with a Master’s Thesis.
