Procedure, specifications and recommendations for the individual STPL
As the components of the master's minor in Sustainable Development build on each other in terms of method and content, the STPL needs to consider the following points:
- Component A is worth 10 ECTS credits and consists of one lecture (3 ECTS credits), one lecture with exercises (4 ECTS credits) and one seminar (3 ECTS credits). Component A is taught each year in the fall semester and constitutes the foundation and requirement for attending components B and C.
- Component B is worth 10 ECTS credits and consists of one seminar with individual written work (4 ECTS credits) and a complementary individual study program (6 ECTS credits). The seminar takes place in the spring semester. The complementary individual study program can be completed in the 2nd, 3rd and/or 4th semester. Students must successfully complete component A before they can be admitted for component B.
- Component C is worth 10 ECTS credits and consists of three elements of study: attendance at a seminar on interdisciplinary group work, interdisciplinary group work and individual reflection. The three elements form one unit and may not be completed separately. Component C takes place every year, beginning in the middle of the spring semester (semester week 8) and continues into the following fall semester. To be admitted for component C, students must have successfully completed component A and the seminar in component B, or they need to attend this seminar alongside component C.
