    The seminar is designed to help the students prepare their thesis. The seminar sessions can be helpful due to many reasons. First, the seminar is a natural place to seek comments and constructive criticism from the instructor and other seminar participants. Second, the fact that each student has to make two presentations organizes the work by setting concrete goals and timetables. Third, the act of presenting the research often prompts the student to think along lines that would not occur to him or her otherwise.
