Special features regarding teachingThe department has its own Study Centre with individual supervision. Developed writing coaching (Internet portal: "Bremen Writing Coach", "The Academic Writer's Workbench") as well as measures of the BMBF initiative "Bildung in Sprache und Schrift" (Education in written and spoken language) support the learning process. A close link between research and teaching is achieved early on via research-based learning projects. The curriculum is developed in study committees with equal representation of students.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe department has an Erasmus coordination and accreditation office, which organises the stay abroad for incoming and outgoing students. The Erasmus Mundus Programme "German Literature of the Middle Ages in a European Context", the international Master's programme "Transnational Literary Studies" as well as regular summer academies attract foreign students and academics to the department. Firm commitment to acquiring doctoral scholarships, Fulbright and Humboldt guest lecturers ensure an intensive international exchange.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe department offers its own CIP pool and study rooms, some with additional PC workstations. Modern media technology is either located in the classrooms themselves or is available for mobile use via a media centre. There are also workstations available for student groups with media/technical computer equipment across the university.
