Special features regarding teachingThe special features of the teaching lies in the design of the introductory and final phases. Basic linguistic knowledge is taught at the beginning in medium-sized seminar groups and tutorials, which offer plenty of opportunities for discussion. Over the course of the degree the teaching increasingly focuses on theoretical contents and basics of empirical research. This allows students to work on current research issues, especially during their final dissertations. The classes are taught in English.

It is for this reason that the faculty has established a coordination office for international matters. This office guarantees continuity in the planning and execution of new strategies to increase mobility as well as targeted, on-site internationalisation. This office also provides a reliable contact point for both staff and students.
