The seminars and initiatives that provide access to CFUs are educational activities that the Department of Political Science and International Affairs offers as part of the "Other Activities" to be included to the curriculum.
At the beginning of each academic year, the Department publishes on its website a list of activities linked to each seminar so that each student can choose which seminar activities to include in their study plan for a total of 3 CFUs. These 3 CFU can be
achieved by combining seminars from the same discipline or from different disciplines, at the student's discretion. In addition, CFU-accessible seminars and initiatives may also be chosen as "Student Choice Activities".
The seminars and initiatives of African History and Politics deal with specialised topics regarding the History of International Relations. The list of seminars and initiatives that allow access to CFUs from African History scheduled for this academic year is available on the Department's website.
At the end of the seminar, the student is able to:
Identify and analyse the main sources on the topics covered in the seminar
Develop critical judgement skills
Develop analysis and critical insights into individual seminars' topics
Present personal research, using appropriate vocabulary
According to the rules of the University of Genova the seminar will be provided with lectures in class.
Unless otherwise decided by the University, the course will be taught in a blended mode, with lectures. Attendance will be mandatory for group activities in the classroom. In order to participate in face-to-face lectures, students will have to follow the rules indicated from time to time on the University website and on the Department website.
At the beginning of each academic year, the Lecturer of African History and Politics will inform students about the content of the African History seminars.
The Lecturer in charge of the African History and Politics course will inform the students who intend to attend the seminar of the readings required to obtain the credits.
