Disclaimer: The applicable legal regulations can be found in the framework ordinance (Rahmenverordnung) and the program regulation (Studienordnung) for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

Preliminary Remarks

The following sample timetables suggest some of the ways in which one can study the Bachelor Minor in English Literature and Linguistics (60 ECTS).

There is one example for students who study full-time and who intend to complete their studies in six semesters. In addition, there are two examples for part-time students with a two-third workload (i.e. 66.7%).

Note: None of these sample timetables are binding; they are intended as examples or 'templates.'

 

Full-Time Students: One Example

Important: It is not mandatory to complete one's studies in six semesters. In fact, even full-time students may want to plan with six to seven semesters of study, to allow for some flexibility in their study plan.

Sample Timetable for Full-Time Students

  • We strongly recommend that students start their studies in the fall semester.
  • In the case of two-semester modules, the total number of ECTS points is 'spread out' over two semesters.
  • While it is possible to go abroad at any point after the first two semesters, the 'template' semester for a stay abroad is semester 5. Please consult the Study Abroad section of the ES website for more details.
  • The final semester is not ideal for a stay abroad.
