EXAMS

Exam description

You need to produce e  relation on the classorrom exertcitation  done during lessons. When the relation is approved you can have oral discussion on course themes

Assessment methods

The exam is divided into two parts: the first part consists in evaluating classroom exercises; The second part consists of an individual interview on the basic notions of the course aimed at verifying the preparation of student on the themes developed during the lessons and individually deepened in the texts indicated in the essential bibliography.

In general, students must demonstrate synthesis and exposure skills as well as ability to critically reprocess and effectively utilize acquired knowledge.
