Inter- / Transdisciplinary and Complementary or Affine Areas in Master's Programs

  3. Enrollment in Modules at Other Departments
  4. Offers for Students from Other Departments

General Information:

Inter- and transdisciplinary or complementary modules are often part of a Master's program. Students may choose one or more modules which complement their chosen profile areas via interdisciplinary content. This creates an extended yet coherent qualification profile. The obligatory amount of credits you need to collect in this area throughout your Master's studies varies accordning to the relevant program regulations, though it usually lies between 10 and 20 credit points.

Procedure:

  1. One can enroll only in complete modules that are listed in the program and examination regulations (in their current forms, respectively). Single courses (outside of the context of modules) are not available for enrollment as they do not offer credit points.
  2. One should communicate with the lecturer or person in charge of the module prior to the start of courses to ensure that one's participation is possible.
  3. As the enrolment cannot be administered through Campus Management, you must fill out the form for 'Modulanmeldung' and hand in the original (which must be signed by the teacher of the course) at the Office of Academic Affairs before the deadline for course registration.

The modules will subsequently be booked through Campus Management (is possible) so that the evaluation can take place directly via CM. In case the enrollment via CM is not permitted, we will send you an e-mail detailing the further procedure with regards to the module.

If you wish to enroll in a module at a different department, please continue reading section 3.

Enrollment in Modules at Other Departments:

The enrollment in modules at other departments is generally possible. In addition to the above mentioned procedure, however, you must register in the module through the Office of Academic Affairs and/or Examination Office of the department offering the course.

The enrollment in modules at the following departments is available to a limited extent:

  • Department of Political and Social Sciences
  • Department of Earth Sciences

The Department of Political and Social Sciences offers the modules "Konstitution politischer Ordnung" (10 credits) as well as "Internationale Wirtschaft und regionale Integration" (10 credits). To apply for enrollment in these modules you must hand in an informal registration with the full title of the module at the Office of Academic Affairs of the Department of History and Cultural Studies at the very beginning of the registration period. The further procedure will then be communicated via e-mail.

The Department of Earth Sciences offers certain modules after consultation with the lecturer in charge. To apply for enrollment in these modules you must hand in an informal registration with the full title of the module at the Office of Academic Affairs of the Department of History and Cultural Studies at the very beginning of the registration period. The further procedure will then be communicated via e-mail.

Offers for Students from Other Departments:

Students from other departments can enroll in modules at the Department of History and Cultural Studies via this form, which must be handed in to the Office of Academic Affairs. The modules will subsequently be booked through Campus Management (is possible) so that the evaluation can take place directly via CM. In case the enrollment via CM is not permitted, we will send you an e-mail detailing the further procedure with regards to the module.

It should be noted that only a limited number of participants from the Departments of Political and Social Sciences and Earth Sciences, respectively, can enroll in modules at the our department. It is therefore advisable to register at our Office of Academic Affairs as soon as possible.
