MA thesis grading exercise: In the second part, students will read and evaluate three actual MA theses that have been written as part of the EcoS program. Each thesis has to be graded numerically and verbally according to the EcoS standard (for details including a template see Moodle). The reports have to be submitted electronically 24 hours before class. During class, students will be asked to explain their evaluation.
Topic and research question: Beginning from the first unit of the seminar, students are re-quired to think about a research topic, a research question, and a draft outline of their re-search project including methodology. The topic and research question (one paragraph) must be submitted via Moodle 24 hours before class.
State of the Art: A profound and structured discussion of at least 20 relevant sources on the narrow topic of the thesis must be submitted electronically 24 hours before class.
The following rules apply to late submission: 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 down-grading by two full grades, and so forth.
To adjust the workload, we will occasionally skip single units and allot this time to the prepa-ration of the assignments. For details see the separate schedule.
