3. Course contents *

The end result is a journal article. As such, the Master thesis builds on but goes beyond both the exercises and papers that you have written during the bachelor. The most important difference with the Bachelor paper is that the Master Thesis is to contain original insights. This originalquality can be sought for in the use of untapped primary source material, the use of a comparative perspective, an original research question, methodology and source criticism, etc.
