  • 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 2020

  • 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 April 25, 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.
