Omschrijving The master's thesis is the result of a research project, undertaken by the student, on a topic that has bearing on youth care, policy and/or education. The research project is supervised by two members of the teaching staff: one member will be responsible for supervision of the process, the other member will be responsible for approving the research proposal and for the final grading of the thesis. In most cases, the research project will be performed in close relation to research of the teaching staff; however, students may also present ideas for other projects. Writing a thesis in relation to the internship is also a possibility (depending on approval by coordinator and/or other staff members)
In the final stage of the process, the student will give a (poster)presentation on the research project and discuss findings, recommendations and limitations.
