The center’s working method – operating on the basis of long-term focalizations – chimes with the long-term approach taken in M.A. programs and, even more so, as part of writing a Ph.D. thesis. For the center enables project-based, applied, research-based teaching units spanning a relatively long period of time (such as an academic year), springboards that help students write their M.A. and Ph.D. theses. Furthermore, students can draw on the excellent networks of the professorship for modernity in regional, national and international contexts.
