Lector: Florian Bodenseher, FH-Prof. Dr. Marc Diebäcker, FH-Prof.in Mag.a Manuela Hofer, BA, FH-Prof.in Gabriele Kronberger, MA MSc, Mag.a Dr.in Irene Messinger, Dr.in DSAin Karin Rowhani-Wimmer, Mag.a (FH) Doris Stephan, Mag.a Gabriele Wild

1.5SWS
2ECTS

Lecture contents

The students reflect on the demands placed on writing a thesis regarding research strategy, topical focus and question. They deepen their knowledge about different ways of working, in terms of analysing the literature and familiarising themselves with the formal rules. They practice the scientific argumentation and analysis of subject-specific areas of discourse, learn to assess resources and understand the criteria for assessing academic writing.
The students are supported during the preparation of the exposé and narrowing of their topical scope. Concrete sources are discussed with them and they receive feedback on their writing and research process, while working on their exposé. The exposé is presented and discussed with the students during the module, and a general structure and time plan for the thesis is elaborated. Furthermore, they determine preliminary presuppositions in relation to the expected findings of their BA thesis.
