Anotace - angličtina
A bachelor’s thesis is usually the first comprehensive academic work authored by students. Importantly, a successful defence of a bachelor’s thesis is one of the requirements to finish the study and receive the BA degree. Since the path to writing a bachelor’s thesis is quite long with many challenges, the course starts this process with essential assistance.
Poslední úprava: Hájek Lukáš, Mgr., M.A., Ph.D. (20.01.2024)
Cíl předmětu - angličtina
The course presents all the formal requirements of bachelor’s theses and delivers tips and tricks on writing a bachelor’s thesis. Furthermore, the course focuses on specifics of theses from the field of either comparative politics, political economy, or political philosophy. Besides this, the course helps students prepare their bachelor’s thesis proposals so that they can find a supervisor and increase their chances of writing a great piece of work.

Podmínky zakončení předmětu - angličtina
The course is finished by course credit. The teacher of the course gives the credits after the student’s supervisor registers the bachelor’s thesis in the SIS based on the student’s proposal. To get the credits, send an e-mail to the teacher of the course informing that the bachelor’s thesis has been registered in the SIS.

Metody výuky - angličtina
To share materials and plan the semester, we will use an electronic platform Moodle. In total, there are 12 meetings – nonetheless, attendance is not mandatory, so students do not have to apologise for an absence. Still, students are strongly advised to attend all relevant thematic seminars and a selected group debate.
