Course Description
Human Rights and International Cooperation Development is a basic survey that will introduce you to a wide array of areas in the field of cooperation for development and, to a lesser extent, Human Rights.

Those students who are well-informed will obtain “positive points”. Twenty “positive points” assure the student the extra-credit point in their final grade (provided they obtain the minimum required grade of 4).

Punctuality: Students that come more than 10 minutes late to class will have a penalty of one “negative point” each time they come late. Having a negative point implies losing one positive point. Students with more negative than positive points, cannot qualify for this extra-credit point.

Negative points can also be obtained if the student is not working adequately in class assignments or team work.

Attitude: Students that show a lack of respect to the teacher or their peers, even if it’s just once, will not qualify for the extra-credit point.

Exams
Exams will only be carried out on dates which are the official established day for the rest of the class. No exceptions will be made, unless it has the approval of both the head of department and dean of Social Sciences.

IMPORTANT: The European University of Madrid does not allow teachers to change the rules established at the beginning of the course, even if it’s for the students benefit. So, it’s important students are aware of the criteria that rule each course from the beginning.

Miscellaneous Policies
Eating in class is absolutely forbidden, as well as any activities which distract class peers or the teacher. Eg: using whatsup or whatever technological devices.
