Course Syllabus

Abstract

The aim of the course is the professional formation of MA students, preparing them for the prospective academic career. We discuss academic project design, individual projects led by invited speakers as well as by the students themselves, as well as different modes of presenting their research, including oral conference presentations, slides and posters. The general focus is on a wider coverage of research problems and methods of linguistic study, which means inviting experts from different areas of linguistics to talk about their research.
