Doel vak

Training in different aspects of political science research,
specifically with regard to:

- Reflection on meta-theoretical assumptions and methodological choices;
- Data collection & analysis; causality, etc.,
Depending on the kind of research the student is involved in.

Inhoud vak

The research colloquium is a research internship / assistantship in
which students gain experience in conducting political science research
by being involved in ongoing research in the Department of Political
Science and Public Administration. Data, literature, or findings
gathered in the research colloquium can serve as input for the Bachelor
thesis (provided there is a thematic fit and the supervisor of the
thesis agrees). Preferably, the student contributes to other output as
well, such as a research paper or report. Supervision takes place by the
researcher to whom the student acts as an intern / assistant and by the
course coordinator. Both can organize tutorials with all HP Political
Science students or, if needed, individually.
