Inhoud vak

The HP Research Project in Public Administration and Organization
Science allows for an extension of 6 EC of the bachelor thesis research.
Whereas the
regular Bachelor Thesis in Public Administration and Organization
Science (12 EC) is timetabled in periods 5 and 6 and consists of a
literature review, the thesis trajectory of honours students starts one
period earlier and comprises both a literature review and a related
empirical research component.
The project results in a bachelor thesis
(possibly in the form of a journal article) that is worth the extra 6
Supervision is provided by a staff member according to a
master-apprentice model. Each student may determine her or his research
topic in consultation with the supervisor. Topics fit within the fields
of public administration and organization science and preferably relate
to one or more of the areas of research conducted within the departments
If two or more honours students are being supervised by the same staff
member, meetings between supervisor and students initially may take the
form of a small working group. Later on in the project, there will be a
shift to supervision through individual sessions. If desired,
students who are supervised by the same staff member may choose related
topics and use the working group as an environment for collaboration,
for example on data collection.
