Module 15: Project Module II (project work within the framework of modules 9, 10 and 11)

Students will be ask to choose a problem/project based within modules 7-14 and work on it independently. The University provides academic supervision. In their projects, students are asked to select and discuss various theories, which they think are relevant with regard to the chosen problem. Unless it is a purely theory-based project, students must discuss which type of empirical data might be relevant in the context of their project and organise the data collection accordingly. The topic of the project must be formulated as a problem, and students must endeavour to answer this problem. The answer must be based on theoretical reflections and – unless it is a purely theory-based project – be empirically grounded. Purely descriptive projects are not acceptable.
