Course detail

Master's State Examination Seminar 1

FaVU-CPZZ-IAcad. year: 2018/2019

The first of three seminars serving students as a support in preparing for the theoretical part of the Master's State Final Exam. The content of this seminar is based on the recommended study literature on the thematic areas of the final state examinations no. 1 to no. 10. At the beginning of the semester, thematic areas are divided among the students. There will be two student presentations in each seminar – each will introduce one selected text.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will get acquainted with the selected study literature in more detail, and they will gain the basis for individual preparation for the final state examination. Those presenting in a seminar will strengthen their competences in the field of research and the subsequent structuring of information into a time-limited presentation and gain more confidence in the presentation. Others will strengthen their skills in working with literature.
