    MLEST2400 R&D assignment (10 ECTS)

    In this course, the student engages in a written and practical research and development (R&D) assignment focused on their profession. The assignment includes both subject I and professional subjects, and possibly also subject II. 

    The R&D assignment must shed light on issues related to the distinctiveness of practical and aesthetic subjects, their knowledge base, history, practical and aesthetic processes, and/or values. 

    In the R&D assignment, the student is expected to consider several practical and aesthetic subjects in relation to each other. Working on the R&D assignment requires a methodological approach, critical reflection and independent work from the beginning and throughout the course. 

    The course is part of an international semester.
