MA-Thesis in Sociology
In the course you carry out a survey and write an essay. You choose the topic yourself in consultation with documents. The guide consists of meetings where your text documents are discussed. Some scheduled teaching occurs around more general questions in surveys. After the course, you have learned to design and perform a research or investigation task with a high degree of independence relevant to theory formation in the field, as well as to write and defend an essay as a knowledge developer within the field.
