Are you planning to do an internship in your third year or would you like to study abroad for a while? In that case it is best to start planning in your second year.
Did you start before 2018? Then check the English language and Culture Education and Examination Regulations to see which courses you will have to take.
Make sure to register in time!
Some courses have limited space and have a shorter course registration period. So to be safe, it is best to register in time for your specialisation and the corresponding courses.
A specialisation is a selection of 4 related courses within one area of English language and Culture. The programme offers 4 specialisations:
- Language Matters
- States of Literature
- The Social Life of English
If you wish to add courses from another specialisation to your programme, you may do so as electives.
The academic context course teaches you to analyse and approach English Language and Culture in a broader scientific context.
In block 3, in addition to a specialisation course, you choose a methodology course to broaden your methodological and theoretical repertoire by studying and applying various methods and concepts.
Block 2 and 4: Elective courses
You will take your first 15 EC in elective courses (of the 60 EC you will have to complete before the end of your programme). As electives (your optional course profile), you choose components with a total study load of 60 EC. You can start with a minor, do an internship, go abroad or choose from a broad range of available courses. Make sure to check each course's entry requirements.
