Students in the Faculty of Humanities select their written and oral communication studies from the course units offered in the Communication Buffet in such a way that the selected course units include both written and oral studies. With most of the course units, the student has the option to choose between versions worth 2 credits or 3  credits;  the student may choose to take a 3 credit written skills course and a 2 credit oral skills course - or vice versa - to form the required total amount of 5 credits. The student must discuss the additional assignments required for the 3 credit version with the teacher of the course unit in question. It is also possible to complete the communication studies with one course unit, which combines both oral and written studies and is worth 5 credits.
