Notes

It should be remembered that a CFU approximates the measurement of the hours of commitment dedicated by the student to the training activity equal to 25 hours (lessons, seminars, practice, work at home). This course is equivalent to 8 CFU, that is to 200 hours of total activity: if the hours of attendance in class are not included within this amount, it will be integrated with autonomous activities of the same additional duration.

Part of the course will be taught in German. The students can request to sit the final exam in German with an alternative bibliography.

Teil des Kurses wird auf Deutsch gehalten werden. Die StudentInnen können auf Nachfrage die Prüfung in deutscher Sprache mit einer Alternativbibliographie halten.
