Module 3 (B.Ed.): oral exam

This exam (dates etc.) is organized by Dr. Jody Skinner. Please refer to the respective section on OLAT for information on registration etc.


Module 10, 11, 12 (M.Ed.): oral exam

If you are planning to take your oral exam in M 11 (or 10 or 12 should you have taken the course with me), contact me as soon as possible, particularly since dates for the oral exam cannot be given out on short notice. Please note that dates will be assigned and cannot be picked (although we try to accommodate your preferences).  Please note that you will need two different topics (with several primary texts each, plus secondary literature) for the oral exam. For information on contents, reading list etc. please refer to the respective exam folder on OLAT. For the handouts, there is also a template available.


All other modules and written exams:

For all other exams as well as for written exams refer to my exam folder on OLAT, which contains further information on the different modules and requirements (word count!!). Please use the latest Anglistik style sheet as a guide for questions regarding the format, citation etc.

If you would like to have detailed feedback on your term paper, please hand in two copies of it (one for yourself and one for the Hochschulprüfungsamt to keep). If you need to have your grade for the term paper early, please notify me AND put a sticky note on top of your term paper. with the date

Please note: I will keep student term papers (the 2nd copy) only for a maximum of two terms. After this period, they will be destroyed so please pick them up as soon as possible. At the end of this term (September 2018), I will destroy all papers submitted prior to October 2017.


Thesis (Bachelor or Master):

Before I will sign anything for the Hochschulprüfungsamt, you have to hand in an abstract about your topic, in which you sketch the project, your argument, and, most importantly, your working thesis. In addition to the abstract and thesis, you will have to write up a time frame for the project and add a list with the sources that you will use.

If I feel that the project is unsuitable (too vague, too large etc.) or that it lacks focus (e.g., a thesis!) you will need to rewrite and revise the abstract. In other words, in most cases I do not sign the HPA-form immediately. If you need to meet a deadline and need my signature before a certain date, come early and not on the same day.
