Research Projects 

An important objective in the Research Master Psychology is to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for performing scientific research in Psychology. The goal of the research projects (the internship and thesis) is to provide students with an opportunity to acquire practical experience in carrying out scientific research (including problem definition, making research designs and reporting), and to learn to work independently.

Objectives Internship Project

Research projects (the internship and thesis), are a compulsory part of the programme of the Research Master Psychology. The Research Internship, Thesis and Thesis Proposal together should at least be 50 ec.

For the research internship, most students participate in current research projects.

Students have to conduct a number of research tasks, but they do not have to formulate their own research questions. The supervisor, and not the student, carries final responsibility for answering the research question.
