Languages for Specific Purposes DaF

The Language for Specific Purposes courses offered by the Department of German as a Foreign Language are primarily aimed at international and exchange students, doctoral researchers and visiting scholars. The individual modular structure provides flexibility in terms of both time requirement and location.

The overall course concept is based on two publications:

  • B. Dahlhaus (2008): „Studienbegleitung für ausländische Studierende an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum: Ein dreisemestriges Modell“

  • B. Dahlhaus, A. Häusler, J. Michelini (2019): „Fachsprache Technik. Unterrichtsmodell für studienbegleitende Lehrveranstaltungen“

  • As a follow-up step and for the sustainable implementation of study strategies in the academic interculturally divergent context, a media-supported subject language curriculum was developed in 2014 - 2016 within the framework of inSTUDIES. The focus of individual modules as well as the blended learning model is on teaching relevant, subject-specific language skills in authentic communication situations in specialised studies.

    Currently, technical language modules and technical language strategy training are offered from level B2.1:
  • Languages for Specific Purposes Engineering Sciences

  • Languages for Specific Purposes Economic Sciences

  • Languages for Specific Purposes Legal Sciences

  • Language support in the medical studies programme

  • Languages for Specific Purposes in the STEM subjects within the framework of Studienbrücke

  • Languages for Specific Purposes Biology for students of the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology

  • Modul „Fachsprachliche Kommunikation im Schulkontext“ with a focus on STEM subjects within the framework of „LehrkräftePLUS“

  • Modul „Deutsch im Bildungskontext B2+“ within the framework of the internationalisation project „Professional School of International Education“ (PiStE)“


  • The transition from secondary to higher education and from higher education into the world of work has been a focus of methodological and didactic work in the context of language learning for specific purposes since 2017. The third stage of the concept focuses primarily on restructuring and expanding the preparatory specialist language modules in German as a foreign language, in particular by introducing the specific challenges of specialist language learning and providing targeted career orientation for university graduates.
