Contents and Goals
These electives in the second year will expand on theories and methods for the study of transculturality, using concrete examples. Students are encouraged to work on their own subjects of interest. They can conduct independent research according to the principles of research-oriented learning either on sub-topics related to the courses, or on individually designed project, and present their work in the seminar sessions. The goal of the module is for students to specialize in research fields of transculturality and to get inspiration for the development of research topics for the upcoming master thesis. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their professional academic writing skills through written essays.
Lectures and Examinations
Each module of the three obligatory "electives" (M8, 9, 10) is made up of 2 seminars, which can be studied separately or connected thematically. One seminar is based on active participation (for 3 CP) and a written essay (for another 3 CP), which will be graded (for a total of 6 CP). The second seminar is based on active participation through an oral presentation, readings, or short essays (for 3 CP). The grading of the complete module (6 CPs + 3 CPs = 9CPs) is based on the written essay for one of the seminars.
