Aims / Competences to be developed

In the Bachelor's seminar, the student acquires the ability to work scientifically in the context of an appropriate subject area under supervision.

The Bachelor's seminar thus prepares the topic and execution of the Bachelor's thesis.

It also teaches practical skills of scientific discourse. These skills are taught through active participation in a reading circle, in which the discussion of scientifically challenging topics is practised.
