Plans (for each subject)

This study plan refers to the new study regulations (if you enrolled winter term 2011 or later). All others should have a look at the old examination regulation

Please note that the following plans are only rough guidelines. Things can change - please look at the study regulations and ask the student mentoring if you have any questions. The classification of courses is determined by the study commission for each semester. Please consult the lectures page for information on how much LPs (ECTS) the courses are worth and to which module they belong. Please consult the "Modulhandbuch" for more detailed information.

Color codes:

  • "Compulsory-courses": everybody has to take these classes (Pflichtscheine).
  • "Interchangeable-courses": these courses are part of the module, but you may not take any of them and complete an equivalent course.
  • "Optional-courses": these courses are related to the subject and are interesting or recommendable for further studies. The examination regulation considers them not to be part of the compulsory or optional-compulsory modules, but they will still count as optional courses for the Bachelor.
