Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Content:
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.

Aims:
- to develop students' use of English in an academic environment
- to promote students' capacity to present research findings in an appropriate form
- to enable students to reflect critically on their own work and that of others

Methods:
Interactive classwork, independent study

Assessment and permitted materials

Class participation and assignments (abstract, book review, text analysis, research proposal, literature review)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Attendance (max. 2 absences)

Students are assessed by continuous assessment only. The assignments are weighted as follows:
- Abstract 15%
- Book review 15%
- Text analysis of academic text (group presentation) 15%
- Research proposal 20%
- Literature review 30%
- Participation 5%
Students who fail to hand in the literature review will fail the course.

Grading scale:

1 (sehr gut) 14-15 points;
2 (gut) 11-13 points;
3 (befriedigend) 8-10 points;
4 (genügend) 5-7 points;
