Formerna för att bedöma studenternas prestationer

Students must submit a written thesis and take part in an opposition seminar. At this seminar, the student will be required to act as the opponent to another student’s thesis and respond to comments on his or her own work. The written work and performance at the seminar will together form the basis for assessing the student’s overall performance on the course. The examination will involve assessing the knowledge and understanding of the issues that the thesis addresses, and assessing the student’s ability, based on the given timeframe and general examination conditions, to critically analyse, assess and address relevant problems. A thesis that fails to make the grade can be reworked in line with the examiner’s comments and then re-submitted.

Innehåll eller kursinnehåll

The course involves identifying and delimiting a relevant research area and, based on a chosen problem, formulating a hypothesis, before choosing a suitable method and examining the ethical considerations. Ethical assessment follows the prevailing regulations. Knowledge will be collected and data gathered, processed and analysed, and a written report in the form of a thesis will be drawn up with the support of sound scientific principles. The thesis will go into some depth in discussing problem formulation, data gathering and analysis methods, results and principles of research ethics. The thesis will be presented orally and defended in a seminar. The ability to criticallyreview scientific work will be tested by acting as opponent to another thesis.

Arbetsformer

The majority of the course will be individual work and self-study, based on the chosen subject for the thesis. In addition, there will be individual supervision and group seminars. At the half-way point, students will be required to present a written and oral status report at a seminar, where the method and content will be reviewed.

Betygsgrader

Underkänd (U) eller Godkänd (G).
