Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course repeats theoretical-methodical basics of scientific work and supports the development of scientific research questions in the context of historical science or the didactics of history and politics. To this end, a critical examination of research questions, theories and methods takes place - related to planned master's theses. Students thus have the opportunity to critically reflect on and further develop their own research work. At the same time, the course offers the opportunity to present scientific findings in a professional manner.
