Learning outcomes

The aim of the seminar and the thesis process is to perfect general principles and tools in relation with research design and realisation of the research project leading to the master’s thesis. The aim of the joint master’s degree programme is that the students will be capable of completing independent research based on holistic thinking. Equally the programme will enable them to have initiative, show social competence and be ready to assume responsibility as well as develop free judgement and a critical mind. The basis for this is provided by cognitive and applied research. The research oriented, scientifically founded teaching provides the instrumental and methodological basis for a successful professional career and ensures a high degree of competence.

As an outcome students will be able to work independently but will find supervision if needed. The student will write and present a Master's thesis with solid theoretical and methodological basis in the area relevant to the programme.
