Course objectives
Learning outcomes of the course unit the aim of the subject is to acquire professional competences for independent processing and presentation of professional text. The subject leads students to write a theoretical study based on scientific procedures (analysis, comparison and synthesis). The partial aim is to prepare students to acquire skills for reviewing expert texts.
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to present academic project writing skills to students. Students will be able to exert:
- work with sources and literature;
- crate the outline;
- write a resource-based text;
- evaluate the quality of text;
- write the review;
- present the results (defense of the thesis).
  • In order to start working on the thesis, students must enroll in the course in the IS. Each student chooses his/her supervisor in September. Students agree on a specific topic with their supervisors. If a student fails to do so in the given period of time, a supervisor will be assigned. A cycle of lectures begins in October, which will present to students the progress of work and possible difficulties. Text creation progress will be supervised – it is desirable that the students follow instructions from their supervisors. The first assignment is to create a topic, a list of sources, annotated basic bibliography, an outline, and, in the end, the thesis as such. There are two submission dates: the first one is recommended and students who submit their theses on this date will get feedback prior to the final deadline. The second submission date is the final deadline for completed final-drafts. Theses will be defeated within the supervisor’s group. Each student writes a review of a thesis by a colleague and prepares his/her reaction to a review written by a colleague. The supervisor decides the result.
