How do I substitute a core seminar?
As stated in the EcoS curriculum you can substitute one of the four cour seminars (M2a Economic Development in East Asia / M2b Economic Systems in East Asia/ M3a Political Systems in East Asia / M3b International Relations in East Asia) with one seminar of other disciplines of the Institute of East Asian studies (Chinese, Japanese or Korean Studies). 1.
If you have found a seminar in the course directory of Chinese, Japanese or Korean Studies that you would like to use a substitute seminar:
- make sure that it concentrates on an economic or political topic in one or more East Asian countries (seminars about
e.g. literature or culture cannot be used as a substitute seminar)
- that it has at least the same amount of ECTS as the core seminar you want to substitute (7/8 ECTS or more)
- read the entry requirements carefully and ensure that you fulfill them as some seminars require you to have an
advanced knowledge of Chinese, Japanese or Korean
- contact our staff to get their consent about the seminar you want to use as a substitute seminar
Please note that for the summer semester 2013 EcoS offers specifically a substitute seminar for EcoS students
150224 SE SE Encountering East Asian New Religions (8 ECTS)
This seminar can only be used as a substitute for an M2/M3 seminar if you haven't substituted one before. It cannot be used for any other modules!
