Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The Master's Colloquium aims to support students in identifying or fine-tuning a suitable research topic for a Master’s thesis, formulating research questions, selecting an appropriate methodology, theoretical apparatus, and source materials, and writing the thesis. It is also intended as a peer-support forum where participants assist each other in shaping the research process and critically review each other’s work-in-progress under the guidance of the course leader.

To attend the colloquium, participants must find a thesis supervisor with expertise that fits the envisioned research topic before or shortly after the start of the course. Participation is not possible without an agreed supervisor.

The core of the colloquium consists in the discussion of individual research projects. The colloquium is practically-oriented and student-focused, thus active participation is essential for the successful achievement of its learning outcomes. Participants are required to:
- give short presentations on aspects of their research (topic, rationale, key questions, sources, theories and methods, contributions, challenges and limitations, etc) in order to track progress and receive feedback regularly throughout the process of research design and implementation;
- consult and assess past examples of good practice (i.e.: recently completed Master’s theses on topics related to their own);
- submit and present a detailed research plan;
- undertake a peer review of another student’s work.

Participants in the early stages of the research and writing process submit an exposé based on the content of the presentations and taking into account feedback from the instructor and other course participants. Those who have already started the writing process submit a preliminary draft of the introductory chapter (as discussed during the course and with the master's thesis supervisor).

The research design is presented and discussed by another course participant (peer-reviewer) on the basis of the submitted exposé or chapter draft.
