The students carry out an advanced research project individually, resulting in a thesis, including a journal length summary of key results and arguments. Instruction is in the form of supervision and mandatory thematic seminars. The seminars accompany the work process and focus on issues such as problem formulation, theoretical argumentation, validity/reliability, research ethics and scientific writing. The master thesis, including the article, is presented and defended at a seminar at the end of the course. Each student also acts as opponent of a fellow student's report.
