BACHELOR (BA)

American Studies Majors

Any BA students who wish more extensive advising on their study options for the upcoming semester are encouraged to attend the orientation events during our Student Orientation Days.

 

First-year BA Students (Class of 2008):

In the upcoming semester, you will attend Literature & Culture I and iTASK as compulsory modules. Students are guaranteed a place in these modules. In the Literature & Culture I module you may choose between the parallel groups offered for the modules’ Seminars and Übungen.

Both registration for LCI/ iTASK courses and registration for Wahlbereich and Professional Skills Modules (SQM) will be taken care of during the Student Orientation Days.

 

Second-year BA Students (Class of 2007):

Enroling for your major (Kernfachmodule):

In the upcoming semester you may attend Society, History & Politics II and/or Language & Society. Please keep in mind that the Prüfungsordnung asks you to attend three out of the four core elective modules (Wahlpflichtmodule) offered in the course of the program’s second year. However, you are free to attend all four core electives and use the extra module to replace one Wahlbereichmodule.

For enrolment in the modules, you are asked to write an email to asl-enrolment@uni-leipzig.de from October 1 to October 7. As subject-header for your email, please use “2nd year BA”; in the body of your mail, please give your name and the titles of the American Studies Modules in which you wish to enrol (SHP II and/ or LS).

Enroling for your minors (Wahlbereichsmodule)/ SQM:

Students may apply for modules for their Wahlbereich and for Professional Skills Module (SQM) out of the university’s course-offerings. As in previous semesters, you are asked to browse the university’s course listings and select four modules for the Wahlbereich and three for SQM for which you want to apply. The order of your list automatically serves as your priority list.

All second and third-year BA students will enrol online using TOOL. It will be available from October 1, 9am to October 8, 5pm. To enter the enrolment platform, you may use the login data you have received together with your university card/ Student ID. For details, please consult the guidelines for online-pre-registration below.

American Studies BAs who did not get admitted to any Wahlbereich or SQM should make use of the Restplatzbörse, starting October 13. Students who do not succeed there are encouraged to attend the Härtefallsprechstunde on October 14, 2 to 4 pm, rooms 3 502 and 3 503 (GWZ).

 

Third-year BA students (class of 2006):

You will attend the Project Module as a compulsory module. You are guaranteed a place in this module and therefore a place in one of the parallel colloquia offered. However, since each colloquium can admit only a limited number of students, you must apply for the colloquium you prefer to attend. To apply, please write an email to asl-enrolment@uni-leipzig.de on October 1 from 9am (earlier emails will be ignored). As subject-header for your email, please use “3rd year BA”; in the body of your mail, please indicate your name and the colloquium you are applying for. Preferences will then be accomodated on a first-come, first-serve basis. An admission list for the two colloquia will be published on the ASL website on October 2.

For enrolment in Wahlbereich and SQ modules see Second-year BA students above.

 

American Studies Minors (Wahlbereich):

If you are interested in taking American Studies as your minor (Wahlbereich), we encourage you to look at the PDF document Options for Building a Minor in American Studies and to contact our Student Advising Team with any questions you may have.

For the winter semester 2008/09, Literature & Culture I, Society, History & Politics II, and Language & Society are open for students who take American Studies for their Wahlbereich. Students need to apply for admission to these modules online using TOOL. It will be available from October 1, 9am to October 8, 5pm. To enter the enrolment platform, you may use the login data you have received together with your university card/ Student ID. For details, please consult the guidelines for online-pre-registration below.

Please note that all our modules require English language skills at level B2 European Framework (i.e., at least 8 years of language training). SHP II and Language & Society also require completion of related introductory modules. If you are uncertain whether you meet the requirements of the module you would like to attend, please ask the module’s coordinator.

We will publish a list of Wahlbereich students accepted into the modules at noon on Thursday, October 9, 2008, on our website and on the pinboard in front of room 3 5.02. You may also check the status of your requests for Wahlbereich modules at https://sb.uni-leipzig.de/modulbelegung after October 9.
