  • Purpose and learning objectives

    The specialisation is a free written assignment on a subject and problem formulation defined by the student within the framework of the programme.

    The assignment is prepared individually and aims to demonstrate the student's ability to perform theoretical studies and communicate the results. The assignment must contain a discussion of the student's choice of methods and must contain an independent elaboration of the chosen theory and accompanying discussion.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain knowledge about:

    1. collection and organisation of material, quoted passages, summaries, registrations and citations with indication of dates, etc.

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:

    1. apply the acquired knowledge to specific practical issues with relevant justification and documentation
    2. take a comprehensive view of and combine different source types and forms of presentation when reading texts, selecting sources, and in their writing
    3. analyse the chosen subject area and put the work into perspective
    4. communicate and argue, in writing, for their considerations and decisions. Readability is an important aspect in consideration of the chosen communication situation.

    Competences

    The student will learn to:

    1. offer critical reflection on the chosen theories, methods and their own working method(s)
    2. communicate practice-orientated and professional issues and solutions to partners and users.
