The Philosophy of our Method of Instruction
The form of instruction is eclectic and scientific. Each instructor is free to determine whether his course will be solely lecture, seminar or research group, and/or a combination of these methods. Courses will emphasize the use of original sources without neglecting to survey and critically assess the scholarly appreciation of those sources throughout history. The students will be trained both in the analysis of original sources in their historical context and the critical appreciation of later authors who interpreted and studied them.
All useful modern means of electronic presentation which promote the study of the original sources are encouraged. Gradation is based on written work and class participation. There are no oral exams.
