In October 2013, I started to study the two subjects bachelor English and Russian (teaching profession) at the University of Göttingen, which I successfully completed in March 2017 with a B.A., Bachelor of Arts, degree. My studies included British and American literature, Medieval English studies, English and Russian technical methodology, Russian language practice, Russian linguistics, and Russian literature, pedagogy, and teaching practice. Throughout my studies, I put an emphasis on Medieval English literature and chose that field for my bachelor’s thesis. Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales always intrigued me, so I composed a thesis entitled “Predestination in Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.”
Since April 2017, I am enrolled in the M.Ed., Master of Education, program for English and Russian. However, in Germany, the M.Ed. programs mainly deal with technical methodology and educational sciences which is why I applied for a second master’s program, English Philology and Slavic Philology in the M.A., Master of Arts, program in the subsequent semester. In this way, I get the chance to delve much further into the subjects and I am happy about that. So far, I completed courses in Medieval English literature, Russian language practice (until C1 level), Ukrainian language practice (until B1 level), Latvian language practice (until A2 level), regional studies of Russia and Ukraine, Old Church Slavonic, and many more fields.
