Students have gained academic literacy skills by: reading, understanding and analysing scientific texts and consequently excerpting them to find their own research questions. They are able to use appropriate writing and reading strategies to work productively and systematically. They are able to develop their own research questions, to clarify their relevance by doing research as well as to decide on methodology and consequently produce a research proposal.

The seminar will provide basic academic reading and writing skills. Academic Literacy means being able to synthesize relevant information from appropriate scientific sources, understanding its argumentative structure, assessing it critically and consequently developing a research question as well as using it as basis for one's own research/master project. This will be taught and learned step by step by using proven exercises taken from the latest didactics and research on writing as well as by following the American writing-centre-tradition.
