The assessment of subjects in the master’s degree in World History (MWH) incorporates an educational component involving continuous assessment (active contributions to class, assignments handed in during the year, reviews, presentations and seminars, etc.) and a final assessment in the form of a final project. Contributions to class discussions constitute a component of the assessment.

In all cases, the subject course plans (PDA) provide clear, detailed explanations of the assessment criteria and procedures applied. Lecturers will use their own criteria and the characteristics of the subject to establish all continuous and final assessment instruments.

In order to be awarded the qualification, students must draw up and publicly defend a master’s degree final project. An assessment board will be appointed by the competent committee from the department responsible for the master’s degree.
