ASL Offers New BA Professional Skills Modules for Creative Writing

Starting with the winter term of 2017/18, ASL will offer two new professional skills modules (Schlüsselqualifikationsmodule) for creative writing, taught by the Picador Guest Professor for Literature. The new modules, “Creative Writing: Imagining America” (in the winter) and “Creative Writing: Envisioning America” (in the summer), will allow students to gain insights into the practices and deeper intricacies of creative writing as part of their regular curriculum. They are suited for both beginners and more experienced writers.

The modules are open to all BA students of the Philologische Fakultät as a fakultätsinterne Schlüsselqualifikation, but spots are strictly limited. Applying to the modules will be part of the university’s regular module registration via TOOL/Almaweb. English skills corresponding to the level B2 are needed to apply. Successful completion of each module yields 5 credit points (Leistungspunkte).

More information about the modules is available through their official Ordnungen; for more information on the Picador Professorship, please see our website. Information on the upcoming winter semester’s specific module is listed in the course catalog. If you have further questions, please contact the professorship’s coordinator, Annika Schadewaldt.
