MetadataShow full item record
The training of German teachers at Polish universities is no longer as self-evident as it was in the 1990s – ever fewer students are taking courses in German as a Foreign Language. There are many reasons for this trend: on the one hand the hegemony of English as a global language, the decline in the demand for teachers of German and the corresponding demographic low; on the other, the miserable pay conditions for Polish teachers and comparatively high salaries in the business sector. It is therefore not surprising that an increasing number of university students of German wish to develop careers as specialists in various economic sectors. This is especially the case as the demand for employees with a knowledge of German is currently particularly high. This raises the question of what the employment market means in concrete terms for degree programmes in German at Polish Universities. Should prevailing market conditions be seen as an opportunity to reorientate a subject that is currently attempting to protect established disciplinary norms or do they rather constitute a challenge, for exam-ple to (still) traditionally socialised university lecturers employed in arts and humanities disciplines? This paper will explore these questions.
