D. Optional Courses

Any course offered by the University, except the courses of the Department of French and European Studies, is considered an optional course. At least 12 ECTS (15 ECTS for the combination English-German) must be obtained from three different faculties of the University. The courses offered by Language Center and the Sports Center are considered as independent faculty courses.

In accordance with the decision of the Senate (no. 2/2006, § 3.9.2.1), any student who attends public lectures, seminars or conferences organised by the University’s Departments, or by the Center for Teaching and Learning (KEDIMA), (20 hours of intensive courses = 1 ECTS), may earn 2 ECTS in total within 4 years of studies. The Department recommends that all first year students obtain the Bulletin from MERIMNA. Once the 2 ECTS have been completed, the student submits his/her Report Card to MERIMNA, which validates these ECTS for the MET 000 Seminars and Conferences course.

((a) For first and second year students of the Diploma in Modern Languages and European Studies, the obligation to enrol in optional courses is no longer in force (students are not obliged to enrol in free choice optional courses).

(b) Students in the third and fourth years of the Diploma in Modern Languages and European Studies must enrol in free-choice optional courses until the end of their studies in order to fulfil the requirements of the Diploma.

 

E. Diploma Minor

Students who wish to do so may, in parallel with the major in Modern Languages and European Studies, follow a Minor programme in European Studies. In addition to the courses common to both pathways, which are recognised by the Departmental Council upon simple request*, students must complete 5 additional FES courses, each one taught in French.

Students of the English-German language combination do not have the possibility to enrol in the Secondary (Minor) programme in French Studies. 

Students interested in the interdepartmental minor programme in Gender Studies may consult the website of the Department of English Studies which coordinates the programme.
