Study at UM. This study-unit guides students through the "research cycle" starting from a research question and going through the development of the literature review and theory, the methodology and research design, the discussion of own arguments and findings, and the design of good conclusions.
Taught collectively by the whole resident teaching staff of the Institute for European Studies, this study unit emphasises methodological pluralism - including qualitative and quantitative research designs, rationalism and constructivism, small-N and large-N studies, hypothesis testing and thick description. The study-unit consists of lectures, tutorials, and group learning, and is structured on three interrelated components: a developing a literature review, b constructing a theory and research design; c analysing findings.
This study-unit also introduces students to research methods and writing skills and informs students about research sources available to them at the University library and the Institute for European Studies. It also points out at sources that are available elsewhere, such as the use of the internet.
Importantly, this study-unit does not only stop short at listing the research sources available but informs students on how to make research, optimize the use of available sources, as well as use them in the most appropriate manner. In addition to this, a variety of practical illustrations on how research references should appear in academic papers, dissertations, amongst other types of research publications is also provided.
Study-unit Aims The objective of the course is to provide BA students with a solid methodological background as well as the practical knowledge necessary to pursue social science research, particularly in the domain of European Studies. Therefore, the unit aims at acquainting students into the basic research skills, stimulating and reinforcing their professional attitude in doing research, and providing them the background needed for developing their BA thesis.
