Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

YOU NEED TO HAVE FOLLOWED MY "FACHLITERATURSEMINAR" DURING WINTER SEMESTER TO ATTEND THIS COURSE.

Aims: Students gain practical experience in scientific research by planning and conducting an empirical study, analyzing the results and writing them up in the form of a Bachelor thesis.

Since the skills to develop the theoretical background were trained during the Fachliteraturseminar last semester, this course will focus on the following topics:
1) The practical preparation and planning of an empirical study,
2) the training of experimenter practice and data collection,
3) the data analysis and hypothesis testing, and
4) the writing of the scientific report in line with the Bachelor thesis guidelines.

Assessment and permitted materials

Option A: empirical Bachelor thesis
30% of grading will rate your active participation in your group project and in class.
10% of grading will rate the oral group presentation at the end of the semester
30% of grading will rate the quality of the part common to your whole group in your Bachelor thesis.
30% of grading will rate the quality of the part of Bachelor thesis you wrote on your own.
If your group decided there is no group part, the individual part will count as 40% and the coherence of the whole thesis will count as 20%.

Option B: theoretical Bachelor thesis (maximum one student per group allowed)
10% of grading will rate for active participation in class
10% of grading will rate for individual oral presentation at the end of the semester
80% of grading will rate your Bachelor thesis

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

YOU NEED TO HAVE FOLLOWED MY SCIENTIFIC READING COURSE DURING WINTER SEMESTER 2019/20 TO ATTEND THIS COURSE.
The final list of participants in this semester's lecture course will be decided during the first meeting on Monday 9.3.2019 at 9:45 o'clock in lecture hall B, NIG 6th floor.

You need to form groups of 4-5 students. You can create a new group or keep and modify your previous group.

The final version of the bachelor thesis can be handed in either by 20th July or by 20th September 2020. The earlier deadline (20.7.) must be met if you wish to apply for a Master program already the following semester.
Expected length is 35000-40000 letters, title page, abstract, appendix, and references list not included.

Examination topics

Each group will decide democratically which of the following 2 ways they want to use to write the bachelor thesis:
1) Group writes Method & Results & Appendix sections together (group part) and Introduction & Discussion sections are written individually. [Recommended by me]
2 Each member focuses on a specific sub-question/hypothesis and thus writes a sub-part of each section. [Coordinate well to make the whole thesis coherent! ]

Reading list

Will be communicated during the course
