This includes lectures, practicals (in the laboratory, computer class and in the field), book examinations, independent seminar work and individual training in a research group. Specialisation is possible through the selection of the optional courses and choice of topic for the individual thesis. This individual research project with associated courses and seminars, in which independent research skills are developed, is a core part of the programme. Students must also complete 6 ECTS credits of language and communication studies, including at least 2 ECTS in Finnish language studies.
