    THE JOURNEY OF PURSUING THE MASTERS DEGREE

    Settling down in Germany is what I always wanted to. So learning their native language is a must. And studying the language in the hub of it is the best thing. Thus I applied for the course in various German universities. And my application was accepted in the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The main focus of my curriculum is on the ability of grasping the complex issues, examining them critically, reflecting on them in connection with other issues, and present a scientific argument according to specific requirements. The text also focuses on the text as the basic format for all media. The curriculum also includes the advance knowledge of the linguistic system of present-day German, as well as its historical development, and introduces them to current research issues. More Emphasis is placed on the core research fields of historical linguistics, linguistic theory, language use, and comparative linguistics.
