This course takes place every two wednesday of the first semester at MSE (Maison des Sciences Economiques), room S19.

- Alain Guillaume (psychology): email@example.com
Objectives of the course:
The aim of this class is to help/orientate students with their master thesis and more generally to prepare them to an academic career. The class is divided into two parts.
We want to present to students the academic system (research system (in particular in France), the career opportunities in the academics, the funding possibilities, etc.) and provide them some methodological tools to write their master thesis (how to make a literature review, write an abstract, an introduction, etc.).
Additionally, students will present their master thesis project to the classroom. Each student will be grouped with 2 other students (one "expert" and one from another field) and students will have to criticize, advise, etc. each other. Additionally, students will have to provide a CV and a cover letter as if they were applying for a PhD grant. The goal is to help students for their master thesis and to train them in the perspective of a PhD application.
Students who choose the PhD track for the first semester HAVE TO keep the PhD track for the second semester. Moreover, some sessions of the PhD track course of semester 2 (Frontiers of behavioral economics) will be programmed during the first semester. Please, check your agenda.
