Assignments - General Guidelines:
The professors can determine the requirements for the assignments based on the reading material.
Essay: in general, the essay should demonstrate your understanding on the reading material. The purpose of the essay is also to reflect your thoughts and ideas and what you have learned from the reading material. There is no set length for the essay; the content is more important than the number of pages. The essay could be for example 8-10 pages.
Learning Diary: the learning diary should describe your work during the course: what you have read and when, and also what you have learned. In brief, the learning diary should help you (and the teacher) to assess your learning process during the course.
