PSY3908 - Master's Thesis in Human Development
The master thesis in Human Development consists of a theoretical or empirical investigation of a subject chosen within the above described enlarged definition of Human Development, preferably related to one or several of the specializations studied. The student should contact teachers in the master programme for advice on choice of subject. Students are required to attend a seminar which aims at preparing the students for writing the thesis. Supervision is an important part of the work with the thesis. It will ensure that the students acquire relevant knowledge and high standards in collection and analysis of data. The seminar will also ensure that the students follow the guidelines for research ethics. Supervision is therefore compulsory for every student that wishes to submit a master thesis. A Master agreement must be signed before supervision can take place.
After having completed the Masters thesis in Human Development the student should have acquired the ability to (1) carry out a scientific research project, (2) think in a principled and logical way, (3) work independently, (4) carry out a large project within a predefined time frame.
