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, merely constitute the structured recapitulation of existing knowledge. In the second part, we will apply these skills and approaches by discussing and grading four previously written EcoS MA theses. In a third part, we will discuss 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 activity 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 Turabian: 20%
Evaluation of MA Thesis 1: 15%
Evaluation of MA Thesis 2: 15%
Evaluation of MA Thesis 3: 15%
Evaluation of MA Thesis 4: 15%
Research topic, research question and outline: 20%

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

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

Prüfungsstoff

In the first part, students will be asked to read and summarize the first chapters of a book on academic writing, a total of about 140 pages. After this, students will write an essay (5 pages) in which they discuss the contents of what they have read in relation to their own work and research projects. Note that this will not be a summary, but rather a critical discussion. The essay must be submitted electronically before the unit begins.
In the second part, students will read and evaluate four actual MA theses that have been written as part of the EcoS program. Each thesis has to be graded numerically and verbal-ly according to the EcoS standard. The reports have to be submitted electronically before class. During class, students will be asked to explain their evaluation.
In the third part, students are required to develop a research topic, a research ques-tion/hypothesis, and a draft outline of their research project including methodology.
