MA REVIEWING

”The course introduced important subjects in relation to the field of Aesthetics, it was an introduction to many streams of thought that are going to be very important for my development. Although the teacher's knowledge of the topic was clearly vast, it has been a pleasure to see her way of interacting in the students discussions during the lectures.” (student feedback, 2019)
