After receiving your BA, you can continue your academic education – for example with one of our three Master’s programmes – or embark on your professional life. A unique combination of subject-related and additional qualifications ensure that our graduates are highly sought after by employers. Our graduates are experts in the language and cultures that are shaping globalisation. They are critical readers and accomplished writers with impressive skills in argumentation. Their proficiency in written and spoken English is outstanding. Jobs and internships have helped shape the direction of their careers. Our B.A. graduates work in the media, in public relations for companies and institutions, in publishing, for theatres, museums, libraries, at Goethe Institutes, in education, politics, and, of course, in academia.

The IAAK has an annual event, the "Forum Beruf," in which alumni of the department present their – sometimes quite surprising – professional careers, offering current students an insight into the vast possibilities the degree programmes of the department open up.

Additionally, the Career Service of the University of Bonn provides a range of advice and support about choosing your career and applying for jobs, whether that may be applying for internships, looking for a part-time job, or even your first job after graduating.
