Graduates of the Computational Linguistics program from University of Tübingen obtain a long-term academic qualification aimed at the systematic acquisition of knowledge and the ability to critically evaluate and apply it; this qualification forms a first academically-grounded and professional qualification in the field of Computational Linguistics.


The professional goals are as follows. Graduates obtain a good overview of the central topics in Computational Linguistics: symbolic/rule-based, statistical methods, and corpus linguistics. They can apply mathematical methods from logic and statistics. They are familiar with the central topics in general linguistics: Morphology, syntax, and semantics. They can design computer programs and implement general data structures and algorithms from informatics and computational linguistics in an object-oriented language; equally, they have sufficient grasp of theory and the ability to implement grammar and parsers operating with it and statistical methods of language processing. 

Graduates of the Computational Linguistics program from University of Tübingen have specialist knowledge in two areas of Computational Linguistics and are familiar with the current literature, have the ability to compare relevant works and to assess them critically, even to the point where they are able to suggest minor improvements. They are able to compose in writing and present academic material in Computational Linguistics professionally and in line with the academic standards.

Career prospects

Career options are versatile. Our graduates work in small software companies as well as in the research and development departments of big leaders. For those who would like to go on doing research, we offer a M.A. program in computational linguistics. Already during their studies, many of our students work as research assistants in ongoing research projects.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • There is no numerus clausus. More important than grades is the interest in the combination of languages and computer science.
  • As a formal requirement for enrollment, a knowledge of English of at least level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages must be documented. This must be in the form of an internationally accepted test (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.). Applicants with a German school leaving certificate (Abitur) and applicants whose native tongue is English or who have a leaving certificate from an English language secondary school do not need to provide additional proof, as the B2 level is thereby shown.
