Research Colloquium I is a platform for the development, structuring and critique of M.A. research outputs. With na applied focus, it aims to support the development of the student’s individual research projects by providing the necessary tools for the informed exercise of theoretical choice, the furthering of applied research tools and the exercise of competent academic arguments, informed by critical reasoning. Advanced communication and writing, as well as interpersonal dialogue skills are a necessary part of the seminar’s aims. The student will be able to diagnose a problem, to place it in its socio-cultural context and compare it to similar or contrastive cultural realities as well as to interpret and discuss it using the scientific language of its own academic community. Following the Dublin descriptors, and as a second cycle seminar, Research Colloquium I will guide the student in doing original, critical research, that engages in a fruitful and systematic dialogue with the scholarly community of the field of study.
