Course Objective

Being the last of BK course, this course both builds on, and integrates
previous courses. In this course you will individually design and
perform a basic academic research and write your BSc Thesis.

In this course you will develop your abilities to examine and understand
problems from different perspectives; to recognize fundamental
structures and to leave out irrelevant information; to forward
well-founded, substantiated points of view, both in spoken and written
format; and your ability to apply acquired knowledge to other problems
and in other contexts (Academic & Research Skills).

You will develop your abilities to critically reflect on (the quality
of) academic research; • ability to translate academic research into
outcomes relevant to practice; to translate a practical problem into a
sound academic research question; and your ability to design a full
research process with either quantitative or qualitative methods (or
both) (Academic & Research Skills).

You will develop in-depth knowledge and insights within the discipline
of your thesis topic; as well as develop the ability to connect
theories, models, and concepts within that topic (Bridging Theory and
Practice).

You will develop awareness about and apply, ethics and academic
integrity; and demonstrate fluency in English, both in writing and
speaking (Broadening your Horizon).

Finally you will develop your ability to take responsibility for our own
actions; in terms of your responsibility for your own learning; to make
well-founded decisions to support the choices you make and the ability
to reflect on your personal development (Self-awareness).
