Double Major English Studies

Studying English as your Double Major (dt.: "Zwei-Fach") is a way of studying English Studies alongside an equally weighted subject, with a total of 12 modules, equalling 78 CP. You can also choose to write your BA thesis in English, your other subject, or combine the two. On this page, you will find more information on English Studies as a double major, including module guides, exam regulations, examples and recommendations of your course of studies, and more.

If you are new to the University of Bonn and/or the IAAK, we have a First Steps Guide For New Students that is designed to make your first weeks at our department as smooth as possible.
