International module

International Module Social Sciences

The Faculty's International Office offers the "International Module" on a regular basis during the summer semester. This module is aimed at Faculty 08 Bachelor's level students looking to take "General Studies" courses and visiting students from the Faculty's partner universities. The teaching language is English.

The International Module normally consists of a lecture, complemented by talks from international lecturers from our partner universities, and a seminar, in which students present the findings from their own work (ideally incoming Erasmus students will work on Bremen/Germany and Bremen students on other European regions/countries or a joint piece of work). The final part of the module consists of an international field trip. 

In general, successful completion of the module is awarded with 6 CP. If a longer field (over nine days) or an Erasmus intensive course is part of the module, 9 CP may be awarded. Visiting individual parts of the module is a possibility.
