Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

As part of the MA programme students are required to plan and undertake research leading towards an MA thesis. This course is designed to support students in this process, building on knowledge they have gained from previous language classes and their experience of writing academic papers. The course addresses the following three core issues:

- Students' identity as writers and readers of academic texts

- Academic genre conventions

- Textual competence

Important note: students are advised to take this course as their second language class of the MA (i.e. after English in a Professional Context-advanced) to ensure they already have a clearer idea about their MA project. Ideally this course is taken in parallel to the Seminar.
