This research and academic writing course is designed to help you to prepare and to support you in writing your BA-thesis. We will cover topics such as: How to plan and organise your BA-thesis-project; how to find an appropriate thesis topic and a central research question; how to come up with a first outline and structure of your thesis. Furthermore, we will talk about bibliographical conventions, the use of academic language, about methodology, theoretical grounding, and contextualisation of your topics.
This seminar is most effective for those students who have accomplished most of their courses and have started thinking about and will start writing their BA-thesis soon. It is highly recommended – by students and instructors alike – to take this class not before the 5th semester.
