Der Kurs ist in englischer Sprache und lässt sich wie folgt charakterisieren:

The goal of this course is encourage the students to systematically develop a proposal for their Master's thesis. This involves the selection of the research area and the research topic. Moreover, the students are to gain confidence in developing the general structure of a fitting research design. A further learning effect is expected to arise in consideration and inclusion of critical feedback provided by the instructors and fellow course participants toward iterative improvement of the proposal quality. At the end of the course an approved proposal and corresponding supervision agreement will be submitted, so that the Master's thesis work can proceed in a procedurally solid manner.

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung
