K "Introduction to German Culture From an Intercultural Perspective"

Dozent(in): Timo Müller, M.A.
Termin: Mittwoch 14-16 Uhr
Gebäude/Raum: 1012

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung:

This course is designed to help international students find their way around a German university, get to know the city Augsburg, and acquire a basic knowledge of German culture in comparison with their own cultures.

At the beginning of the semester we will focus on practical problems you may encounter as you arrive at the university, e.g. bureaucratic matters and orientation on campus. You will receive advice on organizing your class schedule, using the library, giving a presentation in class, and writing a paper.

After this period of orientation, we will analyze German culture, daily life, and current events in comparison with students’ own cultures. Our discussions will include historical, political, sociological, and economic aspects. Your presentation and final paper will also deal with aspects of German culture and interculturality.

Note that this course is offered in German as well as in English.
