The list below shows all modules of the examination regulations (some information may be outdated).

Here you can find the current examination regulations.

As there are sometimes changes of staff, reserach semesters etc., the actual list is somewhat smaller.

Before you try to attend defined modules ask the person in charge of the module for further details (will the module be given, when, where etc.).

Modules marked with an * are currently not given (link deactivated).

Modules of the current semester are also announced on UnivIS and here.
