In the Social Sciences/Humanities Research Project students will form a small research group and join an ongoing UCM research project. They are supervised by a UCM researcher, who provides a specific topic that relates to her/his own research. Students work on the topic in a team with the goal to produce an output that is of relevance and applicability to the supervisor’s research. This requires the application and further development of knowledge relevant to the project in question and of research, writing and analytical skills. The exact setup of the project varies according to the specific research topic that is offered. Further information about the research topics and the specific setup of the project will be made available on MyUCM at the time of the course registration period.
