- Paper Structure
- Modules are typically 10 lectures and may include tutorials/group discussions. Some
modules are assessed 'internally' during the year through a combination of assignments,
presentations and/or exams; otherwise, modules are assessed by exam in October.
BSc(Hons) students choose 12 modules for assessment, whereas PGDipSci/MSc students choose 12, 8 or 4 modules depending on which of the HAZA 401/HAZA 404 papers (if any) are chosen.
Textbooks are not required for this paper. However, individual lecturers may recommend literature to be consulted.
- Graduate Attributes Emphasised
- Global perspective, Interdisciplinary perspective, Scholarship, Critical thinking.
