BSc Vertiefung and MSc Basismodule

B.Sc. Vertiefung

The B.Sc. Vertiefung is a major element of our BSc curriculum. In order to apply for a Vertiefung you need to make an appointment with me (best attained through my administrative assistant Barbara Jost). At the appointment we will discuss the possible options and agree on a subject. I usually, try to customize the subject to your interest. Below you will find a list of typically chosen subjects (they are very similar to the MSc Basismodul subjects, but, ususally, with less depth).

In conjunction with whatever reading we agree upon you are usually asked to do some assignment, a little programming task, or an analysis to apply the knowledge you learned.

M.Sc. Basismodul

The M.Sc. Basismodul is a major element of our M.Sc. curriculum and has to be finished in the first term of your M.Sc. studies at UZH. In order to apply for a Vertiefung you need to make an appointment with me (best attained through my administrative assistant Barbara Jost). At the appointment we will first discuss your study plans. So you need to bring a plan of classes you intend to take during your M.Sc. studies. This appointment is intended to help you organize your coursework and your goals.

Then, we look at possible options for the Basismodul and agree on a subject. I usually, try to customize the subject to your interest. Below you will find a list of typically chosen subjects.
