Furthermore, students attend obligatory practicum seminars during the last six semesters of their studies. Students may choose to prepare a diploma dissertation during the fourth year of their studies or attend three additional elective courses instead. Three foreign languages are offered in the program (i.e., English, French and German) and students choose one of them during their studies.
