DescriptionThe aim of the master’s thesis is to demonstrate that the student can successfully carry out an original research project from formulation of a thesis through research and analysis, to written and oral presentation. Students shall demonstrate an ability to apply theoretical concepts to specific and practical problems. It is expected that a master’s thesis will present new findings, conclusions, and/or innovative approaches in the chosen field. Students should demonstrate deep knowledge of the literature and other sources relevant to the topic. Moreover, students need to formulate and apply a methodological analysis, to interpret the research problem within its broader context and from a comparative perspective, and to formulate a cohesive argument and well supported conclusions. The master’s thesis requires a large amount of independent work, supported by regular guidance from the advisor.
