This course is dedicated to the completion of a master’s thesis’ research-project. The student will learn how to plan, carry out and present research. Professors with an international reputation in their field or expertise and with solid experience of guiding research-projects are available as advisors.
The course is offered as a compulsory course within the Master's programme in Political Science and as a single subject course.
During this course you will learn to write and defend an independent, in-depth scientific thesis. You will learn how to plan, carry out and present scientific research which incorporates all stages of the scientific process: from problem formulation to theory, scientific questions of relevance, method, presentation and conclusions. You will defend your conclusions, using scientific arguments, at a mandatory oral seminar. You will also critically, constructively and pedagogically examine others theses in the same scientific manner. You should display a critical and scientific approach, in all these elements, as well as use clear, precise and expressive language when making your arguments. Teaching consists principally of tutorials led by experienced researchers.
