System of Required and Optional Courses
Over the course of your studies, you will be required to earn 180 credits. Of those, 110 come from required courses in our department. The other necessary credits can come from the core courses and also from optional courses.
Each year you have a different number of courses that are required. In addition to these required subjects, you have two other kinds of courses you need to take: Compulsory-Optional Courses and courses related to your Bachelor's Thesis.
Additionally, there are prerequisite courses that you must pass in order to progress through your studies. This is especially true in the first year.
During your bachelor studies, you will have to complete at least four of these courses (that is the compulsory part). Which subjects you choose is up to you (that is the optional part), and you are welcome to participate in more than four if you have the time and interest.
You can see a list of the courses on offer on the page Offered Optional Courses. Note that you are able to start taking these kinds of courses beginning in your third semester.
Bachelor's Thesis Courses
All students must begin taking courses related to their bachelor's thesis beginning in their fourth semester. In the fourth semester, there is the course BPP_AJ Bachelor Thesis Project. In the fifth semester, there is the course BP_AJ Bachelor Thesis. And in the sixth semester, there is the course BPD_AJ Bachelor Thesis Completion.
Passing each of these courses requires work with a supervisor. You can find out what our teachers are interested in supervising in IS in the application Packages of Topics (under Student). Then you can contact a potential supervisor and work out all necessary things with them.

In the second semester, you have 16 credits from required courses at our department. At the end of the semester is the Complex Exam. This exam requires that you have passed both sections (A and B) of Practical Language, Grammar, and Phonetics and Phonology. Unlike other courses, you cannot be enrolled for this exam until the exam period (when you will have passed the B sections). The exam consists of written and oral exams from all three classes and you need to pass all of them in order to be successful and continue to the second year.
In the third semester, you have 18 credits from required courses at our department. Most of them require you to have passed the Complex Exam in order to be enrolled (as will most of the required courses for the rest of the program). Additionally, you can begin taking compulsory-optional courses now.
In the fourth semester, you have 25 credits from required courses at our department. You can continue taking compulsory-optional course. You must sign up for the Bachelor Thesis Project course (and discuss your ideas immediately with a supervisor).

In the sixth semester, you only have 13 credits from required courses at our department. None of your courses last more than 6 weeks (as you need all of your credits by 20 April in order to be eligible for the state exams). You must sign up for the Bachelor Thesis Completion course.
Then you need only complete the state exams and defend your thesis and you will have your bachelor's diploma.
