Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course aims at introducing students to the political, cultural, and social history of Yemen and Oman from late prehistory down to the present.

Assessment and permitted materials

See "Literatur" below. No power-points, books, articles, or class notes can be used in the exam, which is strictly closed-book.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Grading will be based on performance on the exam. Different versions of the final exam will be offered on four different scheduled exam times. The first exam will take place at the end of the current Winter Semester (Monday, 29 January 2018). The remaining three exams will take place over the course of the following Spring Semester. More information on the dates of the exams will be provided towards the end of the Winter Semester. Each student will be able to take the exam up to four times.

The grading system is as follows:
5--0-52: not enough
4--53-65: enough
3--66-77: satisfactory
2--78-90: good
1--91-100: very good

If you receive a score of 5, you must retake the exam.

Examination topics

The final exam will consist of 15 multiple-choice questions and 2 essay questions. Each multiple-choice question is worth 4 points, while each essay is worth 20 points. All multiple-choice questions must be completed. For the essays, a list of six possible essay questions will be given. Students must select any TWO of these six questions and answer each in 6-7 sentences. Extra credit will NOT be given if you answer an additional third essay question. Exams will be provided in both English and German. No points will be taken off for grammatical or spelling errors in English, so long as the general points are made clear. Points will, however, be taken off for factual errors, for essays that are not long enough, and for multiple-choice questions that are answered incorrectly or not answered at all.

Reading list

Die einzige notwendigen Materialien für diesen Kurs sind die Power-Points. Diese werden jede Woche auf Moodle hinzugefügt. Ergänzende (aber nicht benötigte) Lesungen können jedoch von Studenten(innen) angefordert werden, die sich für einige der in der Klasse behandelten Themen interessieren.
