ZAS and Berlin

Although ZAS is a university-independent research institute, it has close ties with the universities in Berlin and Potsdam, in particular with the Humboldt University. The staff of ZAS are actively involved in teaching specialized linguistics classes at these universities. Students are granted access to the phonetics laboratory as well as to our research library and may learn the techniques required for fieldwork in a way which would not be possible in a regular university environment. As student assistants and, later, as researchers within our research projects they have the opportunity to become acquainted with all aspects of scientific research.
