Realization

Cycle1 and 2: Teaching is provided in seminars or lectures in which the student is actively involved in discussions and other activities based on the set texts. Students are responsible for actively engaging with other students as well as their own learning. This is done by making constructive contributions during course-related discussions.

Cycle 3:
- Supervision through individual tutorials and/or collectively.
- Production of an essay outline and an essay.
- Taking on the role of opponent and defending one’s own thesis.
The thesis is an academic research project conducted by the student with the support of a supervisor. The time allocated for supervision is limited to a maximum of 20 hours per student. The supervisor's discussion with the student, reading and giving feedback on the paper as well as the time for seminars, are included in these hours.

Examination
If there is a decision on special educational support, in accordance with the Guideline Student's rights and obligations at Luleå University of Technology, an adapted or alternative form of examination can be provided.
Cycle 1 concludes with written examinations

Cycle 2: Continuous assessment in seminars where the literature is presented and discussed on a regular basis. To receive the grade ’pass’ (G) in Cycle 2, students will have actively participated in discussions at lectures and / or submitted written work that shows that they have understood the tasks and met the targets for these. To receive the ‘pass with distinction’ grade (VG), the student, in a very constructive way, will have contributed to interesting and fruitful discussions. These sessions are to be seen as individual examinations and are therefore mandatory.

Cycle 3: The outline of the essay is produced within the seminar. Individual supervision begins after the student has successfully completed this assignment. The assignment is presented as a thesis defended at a seminar. Opposition of an essay is part of the examination.

NB! To achieve a ‘pass’ grade (G) on the course sections that do not end with the written examination/test, 80% attendance is required. This is in addition to completion of specified tasks. To obtain a ‘distinction’ (VG) on the whole course, the student must have obtained a ‘distinction’ VG for at least 22.5 credits of the course’s total points.

If there is a decision on special educational support, in accordance with the Guideline Student's rights and obligations at Luleå University of Technology, an adapted or alternative form of examination can be provided.
