Mistake in the exam regulation M.A. LuS

The examination regulations for the Master's programme in Literature and Linguistics currently state that in the specialisation area EAS in American and English Literary Studies (MALisp-230 and MALisp-220) one lecture and one seminar each must be attended. However, there are lectures and two seminars - as can be seen from the text on the forms of examination.

The amendment of the examination regulations has been applied for.
