Students can choose one or both of two components:

- PROJ (small research project), 2 SWS, 5 ECTS. In PROJ, students perform a small research project, either individually or in teams. The available projects will be presented at the beginning of the course. Students perform the research, write a paper, and hold a presentation about their work.
