Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Program Description: This two-year program consists of courses in the disciplines of computer science, language technology and psychology. In the program's first year, students gain knowledge of computer science, cognitive psychology, language technology and methodology that is necessary for more advanced research into cognitive science. The specific combination of courses depends on the individual student's academic background and skills. Cognitive Research I is obligatory for all students. Introduction to Programming, Data and Algorithms, and Language Technology I are obligatory for students who cannot document that they have completed similar programming courses in their Bachelor programs.

In the third semester, all students take Cognitive Research II. In addition, students have the opportunity to specialize in a line of study focused on either computer science or language technology. This specialization in turn forms the basis for the Master's thesis, which is written in the fourth semester.
