DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH

Writing a master thesis is a difficult job for young men and women due to the rigorous and tedious rules that often accompany a scientific research. However, the completion of this thesis enables students to have a more successful, professional and academic career. Taking this into account, AAB College – the first non-public institution in Kosovo and the largest in the region – has managed to produce many experts in different fields. Presently, the College’s Alumni consists of young but experienced professionals and researchers who continuously contribute to the society. 

However, most of them have not been provided with the opportunity to discuss the already-accomplished research in a forum involving members of a scientific community which would allow them to compare the main theses with others and to examine whether their research has withstood the test of time. Consequently, they have not been presented with an occasion that would encourage them to scrutinize on a deeper level and observe from an academic perspective the topics they have dealt with in the past and the professional experience they have already gained. 

For this purpose, the Faculty of Foreign Languages will organize the first scientific conference for Alumni, with the intention of bringing together former AAB College students as its main target-group. Nevertheless, the faculty also welcomes the contribution of young researchers from other institutions in the country, region and beyond.

Along this line, the conference ensures a continuous relation between AAB College and its students even after they have finished their Master studies. By the same token, it enables the establishment of this relation with colleagues outside of their institution and Kosovo as well. Laying the foundations of such a connection will help create an international, academic networking of young researchers.

Another reason for organizing this conference concerns the evaluation of previous Master theses which are considerably numerous, as well as of the current researches that encourage critical reflection from both the academic and professional perspective.

The conference aims to cover a wide range of topics including linguistics, translation studies, teaching methodologies, the use of language in various educational, professional contexts, examine didactics etc.
