If you wish to write a term paper in relation to a seminar or workshop, it should be sent to the seminar's professor and the organising administrative assistant by the deadline for first/second term papers (see SPS calendar).

There are different types of seminars:

  • foundation seminars provide a broad introduction to the key theories, concepts and debates in given research area such as comparative sociology, political behavior, comparative politics, international relations, political economy, theory.
  • research seminars are more focused on specific, cutting edge topics within a given research area.
  • methods seminars go from compulsory introductory seminars in qualitative and quantitative methods to intermediate and more advanced research design ones.
  • workshops are shorter in duration than seminars and are concentrated in a few days (typically, two or three days). They usually take place in the third term and are mostly devoted to research methods.
