Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This is an interactive seminar-type course for students embarking on, or already working on, their linguistic MA thesis or Diplomarbeit. The seminar will give participants the opportunity to discuss not only the progress of their own work but also issues arising from it of a more general theoretical or practical interest.

The aim of the course is twofold: first, to get to know and discuss the projects of fellow students and second, to consolidate the research skills necessary for an extended research report. The seminar also provides an opportunity for networking and mutual support among students at this (potentially more 'lonely') stage of their studies.

Course components include introductory sessions, project presentations/presentations of work in progress, all-class discussions of projects/work in progress, reading and feedback assignments, final reflective essay & discussion.

Assessment and permitted materials

Participants will collaborate in the close and critical examination of ideas about language and language study. Giving and receiving feedback and support for thesis work is the main focus of this course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The minimum requirements for passing the course are:
(a) regular class attendance (max. 2 absences)
(b) oral presentation with discussion (on set date, max. 20 points)
(c) taking part in class discussion, reading, and assignments (max.40 points)
(d) handing in the final essay (on time, max. 20 points)
(e) attaining 60 of the maximum of 100 points.
