Requirement for participation (“Studienleistung”; 4 Credit Points):
Participants will be expected to read one article for each session. Moreover, participants are expected
• To PUT one question regarding the article, and to ANSWER one question (to be submitted till 12 o’clock on the day of the seminar), for at least 3 sessions, spread across the term. (Of course, you may put/answer more questions if you like, in order to deepen your reading of the article.)
• To submit a brief statement for at least one of the workshop sessions (see the seminar plan) and to present the statement in class.
• To submit a short reflection on the content of the seminar for the final class.
“Submit” means posting the text in the “Forum” of the Lernraum of the eKVV (internet), in the section provided for the respective session.
Requirement for examination (“Prüfungsleistung”; 6 Credit Points):
Written paper (“Hausarbeit”) (MA Sociology: 20-30 pages; MA Political Communication: 6000-8000 words). No other kind of examination is available.
Normally, to work for a requirement for examination (“Prüfungsleistung”; 6 Credit Points), you would also work for a requirement for participation (“Studienleistung”; 4 Credit Points, on top of the 6 Credit Points for the Prüfungsleistung), but legally you are not obliged to do so. Still, it makes little sense not to work for a Studienleistung, because the Studienleistung helps you to acquire the knowledge to write a good Prüfungsleistung. Basically, the Studienleistung simply means active reading of the obligatory texts for the sessions.
The Credit Points are as stated above, as for German students. If, for whatever reason, you need a different number of Credit Points, please contact the faculty member which is in charge of academic exchanges with your country. The Examinations Office can tell you who this is.
