Participants will be assessed based on the bachelor thesis, its presentation, and in-class participation.
The bachelor thesis has to meet scientific standards and is preparing students for writing a diploma thesis. In their bachelor thesis, the participants should demonstrate a profound knowledge of the adressed topic. Based on a thorough literature review, students not only summarize their findings, but also develop an own perspective on a particular topic.
The bachelor thesis has to be presented in class. The presentation has to cover (a) a description of the problem and the specific research question, (b) a summary & the highlights of the review of relevant literature, and (c) a discussion of findings & possible future research questions.
The course is designed to be interactive. Therefore, class attendance is required.
To the delight of all involved parties, including myself, there is no exam.
If a suggested topic is chosen, a starting article for the bachelor thesis will be sent to the participant at the beginning of the class.
