Academic Writing

Course contents
  • The course encourages students to examine the structure of academic publications. The students are confronted with both publications in journals and in the form of lectures as presented at scientific conferences. Various assignments are designed to demonstrate the formal and textual requirements of representing and describing applied methods, final results and a scientifically sound examination. On the basis of specific studies, students perform different tasks of academic writing and academic presenting. Another focus of the course is on the scientific preparation for the writing of a Master's thesis.
