The Master’s thesis is an independent scientific work in which the student will demonstrate insight into current research, theories and methodology which are relevant in approaching the chosen problem.

The Master’s thesis and Master’s degree seminars (methodological specialisation and Master’s degree colloquiums) will provide the student with an opportunity for developing skills which will enable him/her to complete the research project. This work will include gathering the necessary data with regard to the problem the student chooses for the project, as well as the ability to analyse and discuss the problem from various theoretical approaches.
