prerequisite
professional knowledge
The subject is aimed at the students of the study programmes guaranteed by the Department of English Language and Literature. In practical terms, writing a Bachelor's Thesis is a requirement for completion of a bachelor's program at the university. Writing the thesis is the traditional way in which students demonstrate their ability to produce a relatively lengthy academic work combining skills in research, synthesis of material gained from a variety of sources, analysis and writing. In case of insufficient "prerequisites", the supervisor recommends some relevant additional sources to be used and filled in.
learning outcomes
Students will be able to: - independently select and solve assigned or selected problems, - obtain important information concerning the given problem, analyse and specify them, - gather empirical data, systematise and process them methodologically, - empirically analyse obtained material using the necessary theoretical background, - read and analyse/assess relevant sources, select appropriate theories, - prepare a written report based on assigned items, - defend one's project.
