Students will work independently, under the guidance of a supervisor to develop proficiency in research skills. Students will be assigned supervisors based on the matching of their indicated research interests and supervisor expertise. Possible research projects that students may design could include projects related to SHBS’s research programme on well-being, or other projects to address issues related to well-being. Students will be guided by their supervisors to design and complete a research project through the entire research process. This includes conceptualising an appropriate social science master research thesis, formulating appropriate research questions, literature review, choosing suitable research design and methods, data collection and analysis and report writing. The main requirements of the thesis are a formal report of approximately 40,000 words and the oral defense.
