Writing a master thesis is a milestone in your academic work and represents a great learning experience. You will work as an independent researcher to explore a research question through analysing data, such as surveys, videos, interviews, experiments, or even existing papers. Together with your supervisor, you will implement everything you are learning about how to conduct high-quality research and how to communicate effectively through academic writing.
Throughout this process, you will receive support in the form of the skills training in periods 1-3, as well as from your thesis supervisor. The aim of this skills course is to support you in organizing and planning your work, in developing the necessary skills for conducing your research and for writing your thesis using the principles of academic writing.
You can find a range of interactive tools, videos, instructions, and examples on our Canvas page. We also recommend further readings that are available via the UM Library.
