• All students of Cultural Studies (M5 BA Ed. / M3 Zwei-Fach-BA) take the same exam.
  • This is an electronic exam, which lasts 60 minutes.
  • Please register for the exam via KLIPS. You need to register for the term during which you are taking the exam, even when you have already registered for a previous term. If your name is not included in the list generated by KLIPS for the current term, you will not be allowed to take the exam.
  • The date of the examination is always set for the end of term. You will be informed in due course. Please watch the homepage of the English department for the exact date and the deadlines for the registration.
  • You will only be given questions about the classes you attended.
  • If you have studied Cultural Studies at another university in Germany or abroad you will still have to attend the Introduction to Cultural Studies at Landau University and take this exam (although other classes might be recognised for Landau’s modules 5 or 3). The exam is designed in such a way that in case you have taken classes at a different university, you will still be able to answer the questions.
  • To pass the exam, it is crucial to study the list of terms below from the “Introduction to Cultural Studies” (5.1/3.1).


Theoretical Concepts

This is the list of the terms and concepts you need to be able to explain:

  • Culture
  • Popular Culture
  • Digital Divide
  • Nature versus Culture
  • Cultural semiotics
  • Race/ ethnicity
  • Racism
  • Identity
  • Identity politics
  • Gender
  • Film Language

It is not enough to learn the definitions by heart and recite them, but you need to be able to explain and apply them and give examples.

Practical Application

You need to be able to apply the concepts from the Introduction to examples from your other classes in Module 5 (BA Ed) / Module 3 (2-Fach-BA).


Thus, make sure you study the material of these other classes “through the lens” of what you learned in the Introduction (i.e. 5.1 or 3.1). This means asking which theoretical concepts from 5.1 or 3.1 can be used to describe and analyse topics of your other classes in Module 5 (BA Ed) / Module 3 (2-Fach-BA).


Not all concepts from the Introduction can be applied to all courses. For example, you might not have talked about gender or the digital divide. This will, of course, be reflected in the exam questions.
