Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture course aims at helping students become competent readers. By providing them with a critical toolkit, the course is designed to enable participants to understand and apply some of the basic concepts of literary criticism.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam (Multiple Choice)

The final test will be held on-site (this may need to be changed to online, depending on future developments surrounding the current Covid-19 situation. If the exam is online, the mode may be changed from Multiple Choice to open questions. I will keep you up-to-date on recent developments throughout the course.)

It will be possible to collect bonus points in this lecture (more information on this issue will be provided in the first session.)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The pass rate is 60 per cent (60.00%). You can expect about 40 multiple choice questions. You will have 60 minutes to write the exam. The grading will be as follows:
