Die Leitungssitzung Anglistik (British Studies Administration Meeting)

Der Fakultätsrat (FakRat - Faculty Council)
... decides on all matters concerning the faculty, e.g. the department structure, the study programmes, etc. and elects the Dekan (~dean), Prodekan (~deputy dean), and the Studiendekan (specifically for matters of teaching). As such, it is the committee that has to ratify all decisions by the comittees under it (Leitungssitzung, StuKo etc.) It consist of professors (alway in the majority), some academic staff members and the comissioner for equal treatment and the three elected student representatives. These three have to accept every student-related question with a 2/3 majority. In the term 2017/2018, only 2 students were part of the committee.
WiSe 18/19: Johanna Benz, Judith Schreier & Philip Nikolai Hannes
Die Studienkommission (StuKo - Programme Commission)
... is meant to advise the faculty administration on questions of programme content and examinations. It is also in charge of student surveys, in coordination with the Konvent. Because half of its members are student representatives, we have a lot of influence on its decisions. These decisions, however, are not binding, as a 2/3 majority in the faculty council (FakRat) can overturn it. The study programmes BA/MA British studies, BA/MA American studies, the English teacher's programme and BA linguistics have one joint StuKo.
