The learning objectives of the CU require a teaching methodology that respects regular proximity to work and progress of students, respect for diversity of approaches and consideration of the uniqueness of individual cases and bring them to the forefront of the learning-teaching process. These starting principles are rightly included in the methodology adopted.

The seminar is clearly of a work-in-progress nature, and therefore the focus of the teaching-learning system is student-centered.

The assessment shall focus on:
a) Participation in seminars (30%);
