Students analyze how the research was performed and learn about strengths and weaknesses related to the research as well as about methods employed in the articles. The results of these analyses will be presented in class and discussed. In the second part of the seminar students present and discuss their own master thesis. In part 3 of the Seminar, based on the feedback of the first presentation, students are requested to present their progress since the last meeting. In part 4 of the Seminar, an introduction in quantitative methods and the statistical program SPSS will be given. At the end students have to submit a short exposé of their thesis project.
