Inhalte, Lernergebnisse und Voraussetzungen


This course is aimed at students currently writing theses or dissertations. The sessions go beyond mere questions of “correct” grammar and word choice and emphasize 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 appropriate to students from any language background. The individual sessions are tailored to the needs of each student. The course grants 2 ECTS points on a pass/fail basis.


After completion of this module, students will be able to express themselves with greater clarity and precision in written English. They will become more familiar with strategies for effective academic writing in English specifically, while gaining a sense for potential contrasts with their own native languages. Students will develop techniques to implement compelling sentence constructions, create cohesion within and between sentences, and render paragraphs coherent through specific semantic and syntactic choices.

Ability to begin work at the C1–C2 level of the GER, as demonstrated by a score above 75% on the English placement test at Basic understanding of grammatical terms (e.g., parts of speech, subject, verb, object, active, passive, nominalization).
