Writing a master thesis is a compulsory part of the program curriculum. The thesis skills training helps students to get the thesis process started. Students learn how to develop a thesis topic and then transform the topic into a feasible research question. In addition, students are linked to a thesis supervisor with whom they develop a final research proposal. Along this way, students acquire different skills which are relevant for the MSc Thesis such as writing and library skills. At the end of the thesis skills trajectory, students have a proper research proposal, are matched with a supervisor, and are equipped with the necessary skills to write their master thesis.
This course is for the regular master Economics students. Dual degree students should register for EBS4048.
