* Notes:

  1. Introduction to the Linguistic Study of English is a prerequisite for enrolment in Syntax 1: Parts of Speech.
  2. For students who enrolled in Year 1 of Bologna studies in the academic year 2005/06: students select one course from literary courses offered for the 3rd semester. Until the 6th semester, apart from Introduction to English literature and Shakespeare, students must enrol in one literary course in the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th semester (the total of five literary courses during undergraduate studies). One of the remaining three elective courses, be it British, American or Anglophone (Australian, Canadian, Irish), must be labelled as a 19th-century course and one as a 20th-century course.
  3. For students who enrolled in Year 1 of Bologna studies in the academic year 2006/07 and later: Students enrolled in the 3rd and 5th semester select elective literary courses from the course list for the 3rd and 5th semester. Students enrolled in the 4th and 6th semester select elective literary courses from the course list for the 4th and 6th semester. Selection principle: one course in Early Modern literature or one course in Victorian literature; one course in British or American 20th-century literature; one course in British literature; one course in American literature. Each course fulfils two criteria (century + national literature). Introduction to English literature is the 1st semester obligatory course. Students must pass this course to enrol in any subsequent elective literary courses.
  4. Former title of the course Cultures of the USA and the UK was Societies and Cultures of the English-speaking World
  5. Beginning with 2015/16, the obligatory course “Introduction to the Study of English Literature“, held in the first semester of undergraduate study, is replaced with a modified obligatory course “Introduction to the Study of English Literature 1“. There is also a new obligatory course in the second semester, the “Introduction to the Study of English Literature 2“. This change in courses was approved by the Faculty Board on the 17th July 2015. Students who have taken the course Introduction to the Study of English Literature before 2015/16 and have failed it, must now enrol into both introductory courses.
  6. For students who enrolled in Year 1 of Bologna studies in the academic year 2015/16: Regular attendance and active participation in Introduction to English literature 1 is a minimal prerequisite for the enrolment in Introduction to English literature 2.
  7. For students who enrolled in Year 1 of Bologna studies in the academic year 2015/16: Students enrolled in the 3rd and 5th semester select elective literary courses from the course list for the 3rd and 5th semester. Students enrolled in the 4th and 6th semester select elective literary courses from the course list for the 4th and 6th semester. Selection principle: one course in Early Modern literature or one course in Victorian literature; one course in British or American 20th-century literature; one course in British literature; one course in American literature. Each course fulfils two criteria (century + national literature). Introduction to English Literature 1 and Introduction to English Literature 2 are Year 1 obligatory courses. Students must pass both courses to enrol in any subsequent elective literary course.
