Writing the MA Dissertation is the students’ opportunity to prove that they are able to conduct independent scholarly research in an international and transcultural context in the field of migration studies/ intercultural relations. They design their dissertations based on self-conducted research projects, applying and connecting methodological, theoretical, and empirical knowledge. The dissertation should reflect the student’s specialisation within the field of migration studies/intercultural relations and prove competence in scholarly work. Dissertations integrate trans-cultural and self-reflective perspectives as well as disciplinary/transdisciplinary international research results.
The full cohort meets at the start of semester four in December for a proposal colloquium (various partners involved) at the University of Oldenburg in order to prepare for the MA dissertation on a theoretical and methodological level – in cooperation with students’ first examiners (supervisor). Teachers from different partner universities are present and involved. Subsequently, students join supervision groups and have research colloquia at the selected partner university. Students are supposed to dedicate the fourth semester entirely to writing the MA dissertation to be submitted by 30 June.
MM41 consists of
a) the proposal colloquium at UOL in December,
b) a thesis colloquium (with supervision group) and
c) the actual dissertation writing
