@caranha We have something similar but for 2nd- and 3rd-Semester master's students in media and computing. They propose a one-semester research project, or a production, or select MOOCs that they want to take. All are supervised by faculty. It really helps them focus on their final thesis, either to eliminate things that they discover don't really interest them, or to get really fired up about a particular topic!
@WiseWoman That is really interesting to know! I'm really curious about how a Master Degree works in EU/DE, since it is so different from the direction that we take it here in JP. It has been a point of friction when we tried to set up dual degree partnerships in the past 🤔
@caranha Bachelor's degrees are 6 or 7 semesters on the theory that high school is 13 years. Then that was changed to 12 years without changing bachelor's degrees... So many are missing math and communication skills... A master's is then 3 or 4 semesters. Both bachelor and master programs have a final thesis.
