Courses on offer

Online or Campus?

While we are planning the teaching for the winter semester (in August 2021), we do not yet know exactly what the arrangements will be. We are currently planning for on-campus teaching (presumably with proof of vaccination or negative Covid19-test and possibly also with masks), but it is possible that there will be changes. Three courses, however, will definitely be offered as online courses with virtual meetings: Gregor Hens "Creative Writing", Daniel Nethery "Integration in Germany: policy and debate" and Ulrich Krellner "Das geteilte Berlin".

Types of courses:

  • Courses for undergraduate students in all academic fields (German, CFR level B 1)
  • Courses for undergraduate students in all academic fields (English, CFR level B 2)
  • Courses for undergraduate students in the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Cultural Studies (German, CFR level B 2)
  • Courses for undergraduate students in the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Cultural Studies (English, CFR level B 2)
Courses in the Winter Semester 2021/ 22

Course descriptions will be found in the online course catalogue.
