Master Your Thesis in English 1 (Multidisciplinary) (MF030003)

Course Memo

The key to efficient professional communication is the ability to convey ideas clearly, coherently and correctly both orally and in writing. The Course offers concise and practical guidelines for writing and defending a Master Thesis at Skoltech. The course focuses on the main parts of the Thesis in terms of structure, vocabulary and grammar, and their transformations for a presentation with slides. Students will develop a conscious approach to own writing and presentations through thorough analyses of the best authentic examples combined with intensive writing and editing practice. The ‘process-for-product’ approach teaches the students to write - use (peer) reviewer’s advice – revise/edit – repeat, and creates linguistic awareness needed to avoid the typical pitfalls. The Course is offered in two modules which gradually build on the necessary writing and presentation skills.
