The Infoblatt_LAG_Englisch (pdf, German) provides comprehensive information about the degree structure of the L-GYM degree program and gives information about exams.
The module descriptions (Modulbeschreibungen) provide detailed tables of the module numbers, prerequisites, learning objectives, work loads and examinations for each module. The most recent versions of the module handbook can be found on Campo. The module descriptions on Campo include the extra regulations introduced because of the pandemic (Corona-Sonderregelungen). Due to recent technical problems with PDF-generation in Campo, the following versions (uploaded on October 10, 2022) are not up to date at the moment, but can still be consulted for looking up the module numbers:
- Module descriptions Englisch L-GYM PO 20202 [for those students who took up their studies in the winter semester 2020/2021 or afterwards]
- Module descriptions Englisch L-GYM PO 2012 [for those students who took up their studies before the winter semester 2020/2021]
The Orientierungshilfe_Englisches_Staatsexamen_ab_Herbst2021_konsolidiert offers guidance on the written state exam on linguistics, giving information about topics and suggestions for reading.
