This is a section for current students where we keep you updated on regular student-to student meetings, workshops with MaKuWi students, recent graduates and professionals.

  • BaKuWi meets Young Professionals

    Here, we will inform you about upcoming career-oriented workshops, where you get the chance to interact with young professionals who are former students of BaKuWi and/or MaKuWi Anglistik/Amerikanistik.

    Scheduled for Spring 2023: Eva Katzer
    When: 26.04.2023, 5.15 p.m.
    Where: Schloss Ehrenhof-Ost, EO 382

    Eva Katzer graduated from the University of Mannheim with a Bachelor in Culture and Economy: English and Business Studies in 2016 and holds a dual Master’s degree in International Development and Business & Management from Sciences Po Paris and Stockholm School of Economics. She is a Junior Policy Analyst in the Tourism Unit at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

    As a BaKuWi alumni, Eva will share insights on the twists and turns that brought her from Gelsenkirchen to Paris. Building on her interdisciplinary background at the interface of language, culture, international development and business, she worked on social entrepreneur­ship in the Global South. After her first job as trainee in the tourism industry ended after only two months thanks to the Covid pandemic, she joined EY’s Climate Change and Sustainability Services team as a Consultant. Now she is back in tourism – this time looking at the sector from a public policy perspective, exploring how we can ‘build back better’, contributing to a more sustainable future of travelling.

    Join her talk to hear about her learnings on the way and ask any questions you have regarding your thoughts about what's next after BaKuWi or MaKuWi.

  • BaKuWi meets MaKuWi

    In spring terms, we organize informal meetings, where you (as a BaKuWi student) can meet MaKuWi Anglistik/Amerikanistik students to gain authentic insights into their study program. They will provide you with first-hand information about how and why they chose the program and the pros and cons of studying it. In the first part of the meeting, the subject-specific academic advisors will also be present to answer organizational questions.

    BaKuWi meets MaKuWi is also open to BaKuWi students who do not study English.

    Scheduled for spring 2021

  • Stammtisch

    This is a meeting point for all current BaKuWi students. We believe that we could all benefit from knowing each other better. Therefore, this semester we decided to launch a biweekly get-together. Here, we will meet up to talk about current study related issues, invite former BaKuWi/MaKuWi students, and prepare for any future endeavors.

  • Excursions & Workshops

    Media and Journalist Workshop at the US Consulate General

    A great day at the US Consulate General in Frankfurt

    On 25 April, Antje Clasen and a group of her students from the BaKuWi and MaKuWi program participated in the first Media and Journalist Workshop at the US Consulate General.

    They spent an exciting, interesting and inspiring day there, listening to a talk by Brian E. Weeks, PhD and Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Michigan on „The Emotional Characteristics of Social Media and Political Misperceptions“, learning more about the workings of a consulate and the different departments, and even having a video conference with th US State Department in Washington. Throughout the day the group had the chance to discuss central problems and exchange ideas with scholars, officials from the US Consulate and fellow students from other universities. After a long day full of new insights and thought-provoking discussions, everyone was more than happy to learn that there will be another workshop of that kind quite soon.
