Please check out our course list of the academic year 2020-21 in the attachment, and all courses with descriptions here.
- In each semester students are acquired to take a certain number or mandatory and elective courses.
See the course structure of the programs here:
MA in Late Antique, Medieval and Renaissance Studies (one-year)
MA in Comparative History (two-year)
PhD in Medieval Studies
- There is a short description on each course at the course hub.
- Each course has a syllabus that describes the course content, gives a weekly schedule, readings, assignment and dates of exams (if any); it also specifies if the given course is evaluated with Pass/Fail or a Grade and explains the components of the assessment. Syllabi are published on the e-learning site.
Attendance and class participation is mandatory in all classes and counts as a rule 10% toward the final grade. Missing more than two classes out of twelve without a valid explanation can automatically result in a failing grade. Every absence should be explained beforehand to the instructor by email, with a copy to the office.
MA students may attend courses marked as part of the PhD curriculum, except the Medieval Studies Doctoral Colloquia which can be attended by MA students only on an occasional basis and without registration. In other cases, the instructor and the student’s supervisor have to confirm that taking a PhD-level course for grade or for audit serves the student’s interest.
- In the registration procedure, there is a short add-drop period at the beginning of each semester when you can change your enrollment in a class (drop it or add another one) or change the grading option (between grade and audit). This change can only be carried out if the student is already registered for the course.
See more in the MA booklet related to each program attached at each program desciptions.
Please note that the class schedule has two sheets one for BP and one for Vienna. Be careful which one you open :)
