Module contents
During the internship, students become familiar with practical activities in relevant professional fields and analyse these in the context of your academic qualifications. The internship module offers the opportunity to tackle specific issues in the field of Migration and Intercultural Relations, and encourages self-reflective application of knowledge and competencies acquired. Students conduct a research project linked to their practical experience. This assignment provides greater insight into project-related work and qualifies them in particular for activities involving evaluation and conceptualisation. The development of a research question, the research design, and the implementation of the project also provide the opportunity to complete independent academic work. Students are assigned a lecturer/professor, who supervises them when conceptualising and carrying out the research project.
The internship and the research project included in it may be used as preparatory work for the MA dissertation. The internship offers the possibility of choosing a topic for the MA dissertation in consultation with the institution concerned as well as with EMMIR lecturers/professors, thereby opening up prospects for further cooperation or collaboration.
