Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The seminar is an important step in guiding the preparation of an MA or PhD thesis in East Asian Economy and Society. It should thus be attended in the third or fourth semester of the MA program, or at the beginning of the PhD program.
In the first part of the seminar, we will have an intense discussion of principal matters regarding the writing of academic papers and theses. This will, hopefully, constitute the structured recapitulation of existing knowledge. In the second part, we will apply these skills and approaches to the participants’ specific research projects. In particular, we will focus on finding an appropriate topic, research question, and methodology for the thesis. The seminar concludes with the preparation of a first outline and thus leads right into the preparation of the actual MA or PhD thesis.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Student participation in discussion is an integral part of this course. Regular participation is thus mandatory. The following rules apply: The final grade remains unchanged in the case of one absence. If you are absent for up to 2 times, the final grade will be reduced by one full grade. If you are absent for up to 3 times, the final grade will be reduced by two full grades, and so forth.
The final grade for the course will be calculated as follows:
Essay: 50%
Research topic and research question: 20%
Draft concept: 30%
Participation in class discussion: 20%

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

- students recapitulate and practice the academic skills acquired throughout the course of
the Masters program
- they find an scholarly ambitious and relevant topic for their Masters thesis
- they are able to organize and to conduct research on this topic according to academic

Prüfungsstoff

In the first part, this seminar is text-based. Accordingly, in preparation of each unit, students will be asked to read and summarize related book chapters. This will create a foundation for active discussion during the seminar. Expect reading about 40 pages or more per week. After finishing part 1, students are asked to write an essay in which they discuss the contents of the readings in relation to their own work and research projects. The essays must be submitted electronically before the unit begins.
In the second part, students are required to develop a research topic, a research ques-tion/hypothesis, and a draft outline of their research project including methodology. The due dates are specified in a separate document. A delay in submission of up to 1 week will result in downgrading by one full grade. A delay in submission of up to 2 weeks will result in downgrading by two full grades, and so forth.
To adjust the workload, we will occasionally skip single units and allot this time to the preparation of the assignments. For details see the separate schedule.
