Registration possible via Digicampus.

Assured knowledge of Latin is required for the BA history (main subject) as well as the studies for the grammar school teaching degree and must be proven when registering for the bachelor thesis or admission thesis. You can usually find out whether you have already acquired the relevant knowledge at school on your Abitur certificate.

DANGER!! In master’s courses, a higher level of language skills may be an admission requirement (in the MA Historical Sciences currently e.g. Latinum). Please include this in your planning and acquire the necessary knowledge for MA admission during your BA studies.

Apart from these general legal requirements for examinations, knowledge of Latin in individual modules and sub-subjects can be assumed according to technical necessity.

To catch up on knowledge of Latin, specific, study-related Latin courses are offered for our faculty. You can find the relevant courses in the Digicampus event search under the keyword "Latin". Start catching up on your knowledge of Latin as early as possible; it will take several semesters to reach the required level. Include this time in your timetable. Further information can be obtained from PD Dr. Peter Roth (subject Greek and Latin) and the coordination office of the Philological-Historical Faculty (coordination office).

This is possible in the BA History. For this purpose, please contact the assistant of the specialist spokesperson with your certificate documents.

In the teacher training courses, however, Latin skills acquired at school cannot be taken into account, as this is not provided for by LPO I.

Yes. The proseminars are designed so that they can also be attended by students without prior knowledge of Latin.

Experience has shown that a number of students who have registered for several courses at the same time do not take their place. It therefore makes perfect sense to come to the first meeting in any case, even if you have not been given a seat in the Digicampus. In general, we ask all students who do not want to (no longer) take part in an event to deregister immediately at the Digicampus so that fellow students can have a chance.

No. The modules “Basic compulsory elective modules for high school history 1/1” and “Basic elective modules for high school history 1/2” etc. are not parts of the modules, but completely independent modules. With a view to the state examination, a more even distribution of the material from the various sub-subjects is an advantage.
