Research internship

In the master years of the educational program Educational Sciences, students of the major Pedagogy and Educational Studies perform a 12 week research internship. During this research internship, students participate in an organization in the field, where they have to perform a research assignment.


Master's thesis

In addition, the master's thesis can be considered the keystone of the master's program. The main goal of the master's thesis is for students - guided by a supervisor - to display their capacity to think and act scientifically, by moving through all the phases of a research cycle. This process culminates in a scientific text, the master's thesis.
