This postgraduate class for 4th-semester M.A. students assists and supervises students’ independent study programme within their research modules, with regard to their self-compiled reading lists and their M.A. theses. Students will present their projects, hypotheses and results, and receive feedback and advice, both thematic and organisational.
We will also discuss students’ career plans for the time after their M.A. graduation; advice will be given on both academic and non-academic options. Those planning academic careers will also have the opportunity to discuss ideas for their planned PhD projects, and receive advice on other aspects of academic career-building.
The class will be a combination of in-class discussions and presentations and individual supervision.
