Homeworks will be graded Pass/Fail. Class participation will be used as mitigating factor in cases of doubtful homework quality.
Homeworks that are handed in after the due date will not receive feedback, depriving the student of a valuable learning opportunity.
Criteria for judging student performance include comprehension of the literature, coherence of students' understanding of the positions in the literature, as well as students' own ability to apply and extend the ideas in the literature, and argue such applications or extensions in written as well as oral form.
|Modes of studying||
Success in the Masters Program can come through dedicated initiative
and self-study on part of the student. Studying the literature before
the class week is a good idea. Not studying the literature well at any
time during the course is a recipe for failed homeworks, falling behind,
and a lack of preparation for the next course.
