Master Thesis

Master's level | 30 credits | Course code: SK2532

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the 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, where 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. As from spring semester 2014 the language of instruction is English.
