BA Thesis Support Programme SS2021: Tue. 16th March, 1 PM
Do you need help finding the topic of your thesis?
Please join us at 1 PM via Cisco Webex on Tuesday, March 16th.
What is the thesis support programme?
This meeting is intended to help students formulate a concrete project
for their upcoming final thesis. Together with Prof. Olson, we will
discuss helpful tips about finding a central topic and a title for
your BA/MA thesis. This program is not just for students of anglophone
literary and cultural studies, but linguistic and didactics students,
as well. The deadline for registering your BA/MA thesis (MFKW, NFF,
Anglophone Studies) for SS 2021 is March 31st. Together, we will guide
you and your thesis from its inception to its registration in the
latter half of March and afterwards offer to help you with the writing
We strongly recommend international students and those who have yet to
write a full academic term paper in English to attend our meeting.
How will it work?
We will be using a digital conference room (Cisco Webex) for our
meeting. This way, we can see and talk to each other, meaning webcams
and/or microphones are highly encouraged, but using your phone will
work as well.
- The link for our online room is:
- Enter the password: PQte2c
- You may click the link above to begin setting up your computer to
use Webex. Depending on if you used it before, you might have to
download the software and allow it to use your camera/microphone, then
return to the link.
- I will open the room ten minutes before 13 o’clock, which is when
you will be able to join. Follow the instructions from Webex and enter
your name (you do not need to add your e-mail address). Should you run
into any technical trouble, please try clicking the link again and/or
check your system preferences. Should you still have issues, please
get in touch with us.
- The meeting is scheduled for two hours. Here, you may share your
ideas and questions about your upcoming thesis and we will provide you
with constructive feedback.
- Directly afterwards, you can have a more in-depth discussion with
Prof. Olson in her office hours (for which you must register
separately via Stud.IP).
After our initial group meeting, we will have individual office hours
scheduled to offer personal guidance and help you with any questions
you might have. After you have finalized the title and outline of your
thesis, you should contact us or Prof. Olson again so it can be
registered with the Prüfungsamt. Over the course of the following
months, we will also send you supplementary material with helpful tips
and are always available via E-Mail.
