The first part of the course focuses on how to organize a research project, including developing the research question, reviewing and synthesizing prior research and writing, and understanding the elements of a research proposal. Course participants will work together to help each other develop an appropriate and feasible research design, considering the merits of alternative methods. Students will draft sections and eventually a full proposal with ongoing review by classmates, advisors (handledare) and the course instructor. Students should expect to work intensively with their advisors during this period.

Autumn 2020 this course will be given online.
