Class Descriptions, Fall 2012
Courses in German Culture and History and German language courses
The International Undergraduate Study Program (IUSP) takes courses from the university's regular course catalogue. These are lectures of two hours per week, mostly held in English.
Important: Each lecture, whether held in English or German, is being supported by tutorials in English with four hours per week, especially for IUSP students.
In the tutorials the students are working up the contents of the lecture, not only of the first eight weeks the IUSP participants are staying but also the contents of the second half of the German semester. In addition, the tutors work more deeply on the topic with the students and deepen their knowledge.
The IUSP students do presentations and written work on the topics according to the respective lecture and tutorial. Generally, marks are given for oral work (presentations, performance in class etc.; 60% of the mark) and written work (reports, bibliographies, homework, essays etc.; 40% of the mark).
We strongly recommend students with no or little knowledge
of German (up to level A2.1) to choose classes held in English.
