NEW EXAM-INFORMATION FOR M5 (BEd) & M3 (Zwei-Fach BA)
(as of November 2019)

 

      • 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.
      • The exam is designed in such a way that in case you have already passed part of the exam at another university (in Germany or abroad) you will also be able to answer the questions.
      • For Module 5.1 (BEd), “Introduction to Cultural Studies” it is crucial to study the list of terms below.

 

Zwei-Fach-BA

If your course of studies is the “Zwei-Fach BA”, you need to take the same exam as the students registered for the BEd. We ensure that you will only be asked about the classes you actually attended. For Module 3.1 “Introduction to Cultural Studies” it is crucial to study the list of terms below.

 

INTRODUCTION TO CULTURAL STUDIES

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

      1. Culture
      2. Popular Culture
      3. Digital Divide
      4. Nature versus Culture
      5. Cultural semiotics
      6. Race/ ethnicity
      7. Racism
      8. Identity
      9. Identity politics
      10. Gender
      11. Social Class
      12. Film Language

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

 

5.2 AND 5.3 CLASSES

You need to be able to apply the concepts from the Introduction to examples from the classes you attended in 5.2 and 5.3.

So make sure you study the material from 5.2 and 5.3 “through the lens” of what you learned in 5.1. This means asking which concepts from 5.1 can be used to describe and analyse topics of your classes in 5.2 and 5.3.

Not all concepts from 5.1 apply to all classes from 5.2 and 5.3. For example, you might not have talked about gender or ethnicity in your class. This will, of course, be reflected in the exam questions.
