Students carry out an individual research project under the supervision of an experienced researcher, and write down the results in the form of a Master thesis.
The thesis needs to be assessed by the appointed supervisor and 2nd reader.
All the research skills the student has learned earlier in the program need to be integrated in a mature academic study. Under the supervision of two senior researchers, students perform a research project in which they have to show their ability as a junior researcher.
Ultimate grading depends on the quality of the literature review, the originality, clarity and feasibility of the research questions, the suitability and quality of the methodology, the quality of the analysis and discussion, and the clarity of the presentation. Thus, the student has to show competence in all three learning outcomes targeted by the program: disciplinary knowledge, methodological expertise, and research skills. In most cases the Master thesis result in a submitted conference or journal paper, or a PhD research proposal.
