English for Master's and PhD Students: Strategies for Presenting and Writing
  The primary focus of this course is on developing academic oral and written communication skills. Thus, students will prepare and give a presentation on the topic of their research and chair the ensuing discussion. The process of writing academic texts will also be examined and students are expected to complete six pieces of writing during the course. Complementary listening and reading strategies will be covered and checked with final achievement tests. Another major area of focus is on boosting vocabulary range, although grammar practice will be remedial. As this course is for graduate students only, evidence of status must be provided in lesson one.
Voraussetzung: Online-Einstufungstest mit 65 bis 100 Punkten.

English for Master's and PhD Students: Writing for Research in the Social Sciences and the Humanities-Digitales Semester
  This course is for those who are working on writing up their research (in English). That’s a broad group of people – and the course is open to anyone, but the course is designed specifically for those working on a research article, a master’s or a Ph.D. thesis. In this course we will analyze, first, the structure of the argument in the research paper in your discipline, concentrating especially on the structure of a good introduction. Second, we will examine strategies to write better academic prose, concentrating on improving coherence and flow. In the last few weeks of the course, students will read each other’s work (usually up to approximately 10 pages of an ongoing project). The grade for the course will be based on your written work and class participation. The textbook for the course is John M. Swales and Christine B. Feak, Academic Writing for Graduate Students, third edition (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 2012). Students need to buy this book for the class.
Voraussetzung: Online-Einstufungstest mit 65 bis 100 Punkten.
