Course NameIRD MA Thesis Seminar
Course CodePOS540
DescriptionThis course introduces the students to the components, structure, and function of a large academic work- the Master’s Thesis. Through introductory lectures and structured work at the individual, small group, and class level, the students will steadily build a foundation upon which to write their theses with their individual thesis advisors. In addition to the overall thesis structure, the students will learn and practice researching with proper sources, citing those sources properly, using those
sources to construct a strong and well informed argument, and defend that argument. The ultimate goal of the course is to give the students the skills-set necessary to approach and engage with their advisors at a high level in order to efficiently produce Masters’ Theses of high academic quality.
