Module Outline

This course focuses on the development of essential study skills such as textual analysis, note-taking, the planning and writing of essays and summaries. Students will work with texts that complement the lecture series of the core course from a country-specific perspective. Each student will normally work with texts written in (one of) his or her foreign language(s). Although the course builds on the core course, it is a self-contained unit, and can be taken on its own by joint majors (with other programmes).
