Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This course is designed for students currently writing theses or dissertations in English. It combines lectures and workshopping texts in small groups. The content goes beyond mere questions of “correct” grammar and word choice, and emphasizes instead stylistic guidelines for forceful and clear English writing on a high academic level. Discussions have a slight emphasis on strategies for German speakers but are still appropriate for students from any language background. Students are encouraged to make use of the English Writing Center during or after this course to receive additional one-to-one support.
