Generally, the majority of courses have to be chosen from the political science course catalogue (Vorlesungsverzeichnis). With few exceptions, all courses in the political science course catalogue can be taken. Courses with the addition “PS/MWA” (for information please see the next question) are only adequate for students in the first semester and may NOT be taken by Erasmus students. One-third of credit points can be acquired at other institutions, e.g. through a German language course.
