Abstract

In this contribution we argue that the educational quality of the Humanities will be greatly enhanced if students carry out their own research. We refer to a ten-year project between our three universities and report the empirical feedback from survey of 53 participants. It indicates that the skills acquired considerably influenced their future in different fields. Though the design of the study does not allow us to determine any causality in the effects of the program, we argue that the results are nevertheless highly suggestive of the project’s motivational and intellectual success.
