This seminar is part of the scientific supervision provided by the dissertation supervisor and is aimed at ensuring student autonomy in the writing of their dissertation. It allows students to assess their progress in their research and enables the supervisor to offer feedback and advice.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 Define a relevant research project in the framework of the Master's dissertation.
2 Master the chief methods of collecting and treating data.
3 Fittingly use epistemological, methodological and editorial propositions in the framework of the Master's dissertation.

Evaluation methods
Validation of LING2891 is granted in the first year provided that the student writes a state of the art chapter with a reference list (min. 25 entries).
