Requirements:

 

Given the extensive reading expected of students, written excercises are kept to a minimum. Bear in mind, however, that 1 KP equals 30 hours of your time.

 

3 KP Students will be asked to do a written protocol of one of the sessions and have one written idea (statement, thesis, observation) per class to speak if called upon. 

6 KP Students will be asked in addition to write a paper on issues raised in the seminar (180 hours of your time).
