Curr. § 5 Para 1 No 2:

Students are able to understand sociological issues, to limit research questions, to construct hypotheses, to find the necessary literature and to quote it correctly. Moreover, they under-stand to apply these skills in a written work, to reproduce the discussion of the research sub-ject and to develop an individual argumentation.

This seminar conveys two things:

Firstly, orientational knowledge to fundamental questions at the beginning of your B.A.:

  • What is sociology and social sciences?
  • What does a research process look like?
  • How to go about writing your own scientific work?

Secondly, basic techniques of scientific work, which will be practiced - so you are ready for your first term paper.

Mix of team work, work of ones own and input via lecutre during the seminar.

Assignments during the seminar and homework.

This seminar is of immanent assessment character, meaning there is no one big test at the end of the semester, but instead, there are assignments to complete during the course of the seminar to pass it. (Course examination according to § 7 (1) 2., statute section on "study-law regulations")

Detailed Information is given in the first seminar session.

There is no reading requirement before the start of the seminar.
