Exception 3: Presentations and Essays During the Lecture Period
In smaller classes students are usually required to write a paper and to present the results of their research to fellow students orally.
Oral presentations take place during the seminar sessions. The schedule will be determined by the course instructor. Papers will have to be submitted one week before the particular oral presentation, or before another general deadline which will be determined by the course instructor and which will be announced in class.
