Does My Subject Offer Elective Compulsory Modules?

Use the My Degree Programme application to see if elective compulsory modules are offered within the framework of your degree programme.

1. In the application menu on your personal Home Screen, tap on the application My Degree Programme.

View of the home screen. The My Degree Programme application is highlighted in the Favourites and All Applications menu.

2. The application opens and shows the curriculum tree of that part of your degree programme that you opened last. For a better overview, we recommend switching to landscape view.

To see the curriculum structure of a different part of your degree programme, tap on the Bar Menu in the upper left corner next to the KLIPS 2.0 logo.

View of the My Degree Programme page. The last opened curriculum tree is displayed. In the top left corner, next to the KLIPS 2.0 logo, the bar menu button is highlighted.

3. The operations menu of My Degree Programme opens. If necessary, swipe up and tap on Show My Degree Programme.

4. Choose the desired subject in the table showing your complete degree programme. To select, tap on the corresponding Curriculum Number or the Name of the Degree Programme.

Updated view of the My Degree Programme page. On the third row of the pop-up that displays the (complete) degree programme, the subject Musikwissenschaft and the curriculum number are highlighted.

5. The selected curriculum tree opens in the view My Degree Programme. If there are unchecked check boxes in the column Sel ("Selected"), your degree programme has elective compulsory modules.

View of the selected curriculum tree, which is partially expanded. The exclamation marks, which indicate an open elective area, and the checkboxes for selection are highlighted in the Sel column in the right-hand area.

Please note: If nothing has been selected, a yellow exclamation mark will indicate this. In addition, there are checkboxes with a W beside them for each ECM that can be selected. In the example above, you may choose between the options "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit im Fach Musikwissenschaft" und "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit in einem anderen Fach". In addition to this, you may choose two of the four modules offered within the framework of the "Aufbaumodule". The number of modules results from the number of ECTS credits awarded that are shown in the corresponding column. Research modules ("Forschungsmodul") as well as colloquia ("Kolloquiumsmodul") are compulsory and therefore will not appear as options.

How Do I Choose an Elective Compulsory Module?

1. Always contact the responsible institute/department regarding the subject's regulations for choosing the desired elective compulsory modules first.

2. The institute/department will then either:

  • enter the ECM of your choice into KLIPS 2.0 or
  • provide you with instructions about selecting ECMs in KLIPS 2.0 by yourself. As there are many subject-specific differences, we cannot offer universal instructions for choosing your elective compulsory modules. 

Please note: Once you select an ECM in KLIPS 2.0, you cannot undo that choice by yourself. In addition, selecting an ECM will entail that other options, which have been ruled out by your selection, will no longer be visible for you (see screenshot and information below). Changes to an already selected ECM can only be done by the responsible department/institute.

Updated view of the curriculum tree in the My Degree Programme application. The exclamation marks have changed status to tick symbols and are highlighted. Likewise, the checkboxes of the selected elective areas are now activated and highlighted.

Please note: A green tick indicates that you have selected a module. The checkbox underneath the tick will still be visible but will no longer be active and cannot be changed by you. In the example above, "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit im Fach Musikwissenschaft" has been selected and "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit in einem anderen Fach" is no longer an option. In addition to this, "Interdisziplinäre Zugänge zur Musik" and "Empirische Musikforschung" have been selected within the framework of the "Aufbaumodule". With the exception of "Forschungsmodul" and "Kolloquium", all other modules are no longer options.

Do I Commit to an Elective Compulsory Module by Registering for a Course or an Exam?

Registering for a course in KLIPS 2.0 does not mean that you have committed to a certain ECM.

Please note: If, toward the end of the semester, a course attendance for a course in an elective compulsory module is entered into KLIPS 2.0, you will indeed have chosen this module as your ECM. Therefore, please deregister in due time from courses you do not wish to keep attending.

Please note: As soon as you register for an exam within the framework of an ECM, you are committing to this ECM. You may not undo this choice by yourself. Only the responsible department/institute can retract or edit this.
