Since winter term 2012/2013 new study and examination regulations have become effective.
Along with these new regulations also the course structure has been changed.
On the following webpage you can find both, the course structure before and after winter term 2012/2013:
Future applicants to the master program cannot decide between those study regulations. Instead, only the new regulations will be relevant for them. Students who have started their studies before winter term 2012/2013 can decide to switch from the old to new study regulations (but not the other way around). Students who do not want to switch to the new study regulations are guaranteed to be able to finish their studies under the old regulations until summer term 2014. However, due to diverse advantages that come along with these new study regulations, we highly recommend to switch from the old to the new regulations.
