About us

Sorbian Studies as an academic discipline deals with both Sorbian languages and Sorbian culture and literature. The research and didactics conducted in our Institute in the area of Sorbian Studies, structured into B.A., M.A. and teacher training programmes, are world-wide unique. Qualified and well-educated graduates are needed, particularly in schools and other teaching and administrative institutions, both in Lower Lusatia in Brandenburg and Upper Lusatia in Saxony, as the Sorbian populations there have protected status as speakers of minority languages. We offer our students a practically-orientated, well-grounded education which aims to develop linguistic competence and consciousness of the native tongue and its related culture.
