Aims, contents and method of the course

Students develop and implement empirical research projects in the field of Strategic Communication. The research projects are designed and conducted in small groups (2-4 students).
In this first semester students develop their ideas for research projects based on the state-of-the-art in the international literature. They provide rationales for problem definitions, literature reviews and based on a theoretical framework formulate concrete research questions and hypotheses. Students develop first ideas of research designs and measurement instruments. The final paper reads like a proposal for the research project, which then is implemented in the following semester. Session are a mix of lectures and interactive feedback sessions.
