Students will choose a problem within the modules anchored in the 3th semester and work on it independently. The University provides academic supervision. Students must discuss various theories and select one or several which they believe to be relevant. Unless it is a purely theory-based project, students must discuss which type of empirical data might be relevant in this context and organise the data collection. The topic of the project must be formulated as a problem, and students must seek to answer this problem. The answer must be based on theoretical reflection and – unless it is a purely theory-based project – be empirically grounded. Purely descriptive projects are not acceptable.
The module consists of the written student project.
