Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The BA-Seminar provides an overview over the history of psychiatry in the "long" 19. century. We follow a cultural science-approach that integrates the history of science and social history.
Apart from the study of relevant literature, we shall use two sessions to deal with concepts and theories as well as methods and sources of the history of psychiatry.

Aims: Module-aims according to the curriculum.

Content: Overview of selected areas within the history of psychiatry; knowledge of relevant sources, concepts, and theories of psychiatric history.

Method: Active discussion, presentations, BA-thesis

Assessment and permitted materials

Due to the switch to home learning, we have adjusted the type of performance monitoring. The performance control is based on five criteria:
1) Moderation of a session: In the home learning mode, this means that 3 theses (with a short explanation of one paragraph each) are uploaded to the Moodle forum of the respective unit before the scheduled seminar session;
2) Short 3-page essay documenting your reflection on the readings for each session. These essays must be uploaded to Moodle in a specially created folder before the scheduled seminar session;
3) Active discussion of the theses presented by the moderators in the discussion forum. The questions and statements are documented and therefore form an objective basis for the assessment.
4) The presentation of your own BA topic either in the seminar when regular operation is set up again or as a short video that has to be uploaded to Moodle
5) a significantly shortened bachelor thesis with approx. 25,000 characters (± 5%), including spaces, footnotes, title page, table of contents, bibliography, without graphics (= approx. 9 manuscript pages, 1½ lines, 12 points)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

- Active participation in home learning via Moodle (comments on the moderators' theses) and compulsory attendance during normal operation.
- Submission of essays as a discussion of the mandatory reading for each unit
- One moderation is required;
- The presentation is mandatory - either in the form of a short video or in a seminar.
- Timely submission of the bachelor thesis: To ensure good scientific practice, the course management can invite students to a grade-relevant discussion after submitting the bachelor thesis, which must be completed positively.

Assessment scale:
All written (partial) services to be uploaded to Moodle are checked with the plagiarism software turnitin. The performance assessment is based on the following weighting:

- Moderation 15 points
- Participation in the discussion including various forms of feedback for other participants (constructive, technically correct contributions and commitment to discussing the presentations): 15 points
- Essays 25 points
- Oral presentation including handout: 15 points
- Bachelor thesis: 30 points (agreed deadline must be met)

For a positive assessment of the course, 60 points are required, the bachelor thesis must be positive (one-time improvement with a negative result):
1. (very good) 100-90 points
2. (good) 89-81 points
3. (satisfactory) 80-71 points
4. (enough) 70-60 points
5. (not enough) 59-0 points
