Formal prerequisite knowledge
The course partly overlaps with LAT1310 and LAT1314. Students who have completed an examination in one or both of these courses must expect some point reduction, and are advised to rather choose another course.
7 double sessions of seminars in the first half of the semester.
The teaching method requires active participation and we expect you to meet prepared for the seminars.
In order for you to be able to present yourself for the exam, the following compulsory tuition activity must be approved by the teacher:
- oral presentation (10 minutes) of a given topic (autumn 2020 this will be done digitally if necessary).
Approved compulsory tuition activity is also valid the next two times the course is offered.
4 hour written examination.
Autumn 2020 the examination form will be a digital home examination (4 hours).
Compulsory tuition activity must be approved in order for you to be able to sit for the exam.
