This seminar is meant to help the students understand all requirements toward completion of the master’s degree thesis, and to know how to structure the work's content. At each session, students will be asked to pitch possible topics for theses, to brainstorm on topics and discuss possible development of these topics together. In addition, classes will focus on particular aspects of thesis development and methodology (examples of common types of theses, such as monographs, comparative analysis, case studies of a particular cinematic subject, exploration of a technology, problem/solution format…). Regular assignments are made to keep students exploring their topic and a detailed outline of the thesis is expected by the end of the course.
