Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course, students can choose topics relevant to the respective Bachelor thesis, if they have not yet done so. The topics will be discussed in the first session. For this session, students have to think about their own topic for the Bachelor thesis. The relevant content will then be decided and each student has to give an oral presentation of the topic. Herein it is most important, that an updated literature review of the topic is presented and that the student determines the relevance of this literature for the own Bachelor thesis.
The overall aim of this course is thus to define the own Bachelor thesis topic, if still necessary, and to exercise the methodology of analysis.

Assessment and permitted materials

The evaluation of this course includes the oral presentation (50% - 10 points), the written concept (30% - 6 points) and the oral review of a presentation of a colleague (20% - 4 points).
