Content and Objective:

The project seminar aims at working out complex scientific issues, deriving questions and developing a research plan from them, implementing it, preparing and presenting the results.

It consists of:

Project Seminar Service, Digitalisation and Space I (Seminar and Field Practicum)

The seminar serves as thematic and methodological preparation for the field placement. It includes research-led as well as practice-related, complex topics on the economic geography of services, especially on the digitalisation of transport, trade and knowledge-intensive services, which are developed and presented by the students. From this, a concrete question is developed and translated into a research design, as well as the methodological implementation is conceived. The necessary empirical surveys are carried out in the subsequent field practical.

Project Seminar Service, Digitalisation and Space II (Seminar)

The focus of the subsequent seminar is the evaluation of the collected data using quantitative and qualitative methods of empirical social research. The evaluation results are implemented in a project presentation.

The students should acquire the ability to analyse and evaluate economic geographic processes and to place them in an economic geographic and spatial planning context. They should be enabled to develop scientific questions, to transfer them into a research plan and to carry out the research process. Likewise, quantitative and qualitative methods of empirical social research are practised so that the students can select and apply them confidently and independently in their later professional careers. In addition, the writing of scientific reports is practised. The students are thus put in a position to carry out independent scientific research projects, such as their Master's thesis.
