In accordance with the Bologna Agreement, the department offers bachelor's degree programmes (3 years) and subsequent master's degree programmes (2 years) in two areas:

  • German Language and Literature (branch of study: Teaching of Academic Subjects)
  • German Language and Literature (branch of study: Translation and Interpreting)

The bachelor's and master's degree programmes are available in the form of day study in combination with another subject or as a single-subject course of study, and also in the form of an external single-subject course of study.

The German Language and Literature Teaching master's programme is provided in cooperation with the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Friedrich Schiller University Jena) in accordance with the Agreement on Mutually Provided Academic Programmes between the Faculty of Philosophy at Friedrich Schiller University in Jena and the Faculty of Humanities of MBU in Banská Bystrica.

An important achievement for the Department was establishing cooperation with Vienna University and the creation of an international doctoral programme under dual administration – cotutelle de thèse – at both the Faculty of Humanities of Matej Bel University and Vienna University.

As part of the lifelong learning programme, the Department of German Studies offers a two-year programme in technical translation.
