ES Website Update: Studienordnung Reform HS 13

A new section has been added to the English Department website outlining the expected changes to the programme regulations that will come into force under the Bologna reform in the HS 13. Please note that all Bachelor and Master students of English Literature and Linguistics will be affected by this change, irrespective of when they first matriculated. Students are advised to read the relevant section of the website with care, since in certain cases, some of the implications of the HS 13 change may affect your course choices in the FS 13.
