The study programmes Computational Linguistics and Digital Humanities are targeted at students interested in questions form the fields of technology, linguistics as well as literary studies.
The Trier BA and MA study programmes in Computational Linguistics teach contents and techniques preparing graduates for qualified occupations within the broad field of information and communication technologies. The students acquire knowledge in those fields significant for and working with automated language and data processing (amongst others linguistics, psychology, computer sciences) and gain experience in the work with the most important tools, analysis techniques as well as methodology to apply proposed concepts for problem solution in technical systems. The study focus lies on quantitative models and methods.
The MSc study programme Digital Humanities is on offer in close cooperation with the Trier Center for Digital Humanities and the department for Computer Sciences as well as other departments in the humanities and cultural sciences (English studies, German studies, phonetics, art history). It teaches expert knowledge and allows for founded experience with methods and techniques at the interface between computer sciences and the humanities.
The programme is open for all graduates with a BA qualification in fields related to computer sciences and the humanities. Based on their prior knowledge, students acquire and expand their expertise in both fields as well as the core area of digital humanities. The programme focuses on the workings of representation, digital processing, visualisation, analysis as well as presentation of humanistic data – in textual as well as non-textual form (e.g. audio-visual data, digitised images of artefacts, radio programmes, and film material).
The processing of textual data is of particular significance as usually non-textual data are indexed and connected via textual metadata too.<o:p></o:p>
