Course Content

Aims and Requirements

Guided by the project’s research question, the project can draw on knowledge from all three years of study. The Bachelor’s Project shows the students' ability to integrate knowledge by formulating an interdisciplinary problem and conducting a systematic and valid analysis within the framework of a complex theme.

The Bachelor’s Project is the final thesis in the undergraduate programme, and the objective and requirements should be seen as a continuation of the First and Second Year Projects. The requirements are naturally more rigorous than the former projects with regard to definition of the research question, methodology and use of theory and data.

The data to be collected as part of the project work may be in various forms of quantitative as well as qualitative data. In other words: Data from documents retrieved from the Internet or other sources, survey data and/or data from observations and interviews may be relevant.
