The course does no substitute the overall faculty Methodology Course for Bachelor where students are introduced to the formal requirements of the final theory paper and gives basic advice for writing a research paper. However, with great insight it offers expert consultation which takes into account the status of research in documentary film, previouse covered topics, knowledge of current publishing, and Czech and foreign contexts.
