The Ph.D. program LIPP 'Language Theory and Applied Linguistics' offers a research-oriented, well-structured and optimally supervised doctoral study program, which will lead to a Ph.D. within three years.
The interdisciplinary program comprises four modules approaching language from different perspectives:
- Language Phenomenology and Typology
- Empirical study of languages and its methodology
- Language and Society
- Language Theory and Language Modelling
The courses in the program are planned and taught by professors from the 12 participating disciplines; they are specialists in their field and represent a broad and interrelated spectrum of theoretical positions, methodological approaches and practical applications.
The program is interdisciplinary and focusses on linguistic theory as well as language use and their interrelation. Doctoral dissertations comprise studies from a general linguistic viewpoint, comparative approaches, the investigation of a specific language (synchronic or historic), as well as studies of texts and discourses with a view to their institutional context and the social significance and impact of their language.
One of LIPPs goals is to strengthen international cooperation and multi-lingualism among scholars. Highly qualified doctoral candidates from home and abroad are therefore especially encouraged to apply.
