Course objectives
The course prepares students for writing their final theses. It takes the form of an individual course. The students work independently in the course, studying the methodology of research, the principles of academic writing, and the formal aspects of writing a thesis. They are asked to submit assignments in an electronic form. Some of the assignments are exercises in various aspects of academic writing, others represent preparatory steps to writing the final thesis (delimitation of the topic, compiling working bibliography, collecting material).
  • The goal of the diploma seminar is to assist the student in completing the minor thesis, which is not defended. This timetable for the consultations is arranged on an individual basis.
  • Literature for the minor thesis seminar is assigned on an individual basis based on the topic of the thesis.
  • Literatura pro diplomový seminář je předepsána individuálně podle tématu práce.
