The different pathways on offer provide the student with the chance to construct his course according to his skills and interests and thus gain relative autonomy in his training. The different areas of study in the programme offer a coherent, high-quality set of courses.
* Promoting interdisciplinarity : first, the various options offer the student the possibility to include in his programme courses from other disciplines, for example by prolonging the minor taken in the bachelor programme. Second, the professional focuses in library studies and natural language processing are clearly interdisciplinary. In the end, the student's choices (geared towards the programme's interdisciplinary courses) hold sway.
* Variety of teaching strategies (including e-learning) : whilst the mandatory core course foreign language courses (Italian and Spanish), use multimedia, the majority of masters classes use the resources provided by Icampus, which strikes the balance between traditional, lecture-style teaching and more one-on-one guidance.
* Diverse learning situations : the master courses make use of both lecture situations and individual and group work in seminars, which is mandatory in the basic training. Incidentally, tutorials are planned for the dissertation, as part of the accompanying seminar.
Students are evaluated in many ways: through work and oral/written exams.
Courses are evaluated according to current university regulations (see General Examination Regulations). Students may find further information on specific evaluation methods in the course descriptions.
