Your personal study plan will ensure that your courses will form a sensible functional combination. See examples of TCM study paths.

The programme comprises 120 credits (ECTS) and it is possible to complete the degree in two academic years. The degree includes 90 credits of advanced studies (incl. the Master’s thesis of 30 credits) and 30 credits of other studies from your or other Master's programmes.

The preliminary syllabus for the academic year 2023-2024 can be found in the Studies service. Make sure that the correct programme is selected on the drop-down menu. The final syllabus will be published in Sisu. Please note, that some courses will not be lectured every academic year.
