Course content

The master's thesis consists of a report based on an independent piece of research that is completed in the last semester of the course. The course is mandatory. The thesis is based on the plans made while doing the project preparatory seminar in 3rd semester. The thesis is to result in a report of between 18000-27000 words (A4 or B5 format, spacing 1.15, Verdana 10 pt.). The student will be given supervision by an appointed supervisor. Supervision will ensure that the student receives advice regarding literature, practical advice about the acquisition and treatment of data, and ensuring that this is done within ethical research guidelines.
