•Purpose
Reading Seminars Intensive Reading Seminars


Intensive reading, discussion and feedback build up general skills for research.

The Basic Reading Seminars focus on the fundamental concept of the graduate school, Core Ethics, in order to consider the problems regarding ethics and rights in our new global era. The Basic Reading Seminars, called Core Ethics I (Basic Ethics), Core Ethics II (Global Civil Rights) and Core Ethics III (Sustainability), prepare students for later research activities through intensive reading, class discussions, short reports and faculty feedback. Since the three courses are the foundation of the graduate school, students are required to take at least one of the courses. In the subsequent Applied Reading Seminars, students concentrate on one of the four themes of Publicness, Life, Socio-Cultural Symbiosis and Representation. In this way, the students begin to develop a personal and individual awareness of the issues in their chosen field. In the course of intensive applied reading regarding text, field or design research, students learn about research trends and ways of collecting information, as well as engage in analysis and discussion. Moreover, the reports assigned in these courses often serve as building blocks for the students' Preparatory Doctoral Theses.
