Credit points (Leistungspunkte LP) are rewarded for study and examination achievements. For the M.A. “Interdisciplinary Latin American Studies”, a total of 120 LP must be achieved, meaning that an average of 30 LP per semester should be obtained. Credit points are awarded for successfully completed modules, not for individual courses. Students receive 10 LP for a successfully completed module, for the Master’s thesis (including the relevant colloquium) they receive 30 LP.
The credit points are certified to the students when the set requirements are fulfilled with a minimum score of „adequate“ (4.0).
