Learning outcomes of the course unit
  • The master thesis is an individual piece of research on a topic approved by the study program. The assignment is an opportunity for students to explore an area of health and social management in depth, to synthesize the main theories and models, and to discuss their applicability. The essential requirement of a master thesis is that it literally demonstrates that students have fully understood the state of the art in international health and social management. The objective of the thesis is to show that the student is able to perform scientific research individually and to report the study and its conclusions in a clear way. It likewise serves as a practice for those intending to pursue doctoral studies after their successful completion of the program.
