In addition, students will become acquainted with the basics of film analysis. They will also learn how to conduct research and how to engage in academic discourse.

Teilnahmebedingungen Open to 1st semester students. No specific preparation required.
Anmeldung zur Lehrveranstaltung Please enroll in your preferred section via doodle: make sure you write your full name (first & last name) to avoid confusion, though you will also be asked to input your email address. As places are limited for each section, students are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to secure their preferred time slot. Note: once a section is fully booked, you will need to sign up for one of the alternative sections. Please also note that the attendance list for the section will be based on the doodle (and not online services). Online registration will be open as of August 1.


After doodling, please then register electronically to the corresponding section in MOnA - the system that allows you to receive your credit points and access the readings for the course (which differ from section to section) via ADAM.

Please ensure that you have only registered for ONE of the parallel sections: students registered to more than one section will be allocated to one of the sections by the instructors on September 8.
