Considering the interdisciplinary character of the MA program and the diverse background of the student body, the course aims to familiarize students with international standards of linking empirical and conceptual approaches, data-collection, academic writing, and communicating research results. The course comprises of three major parts. First (sessions 1-4 and 14-15), the formal and logistical sides of scholarly inquiry and academic writing are addressed.

Finally (sessions 16-21), students will present their term paper proposals, followed by a workshop-style discussion in the class.
