My name is Susanne Greés and I will be the course coordinator for this course.
This course consists of an individual research project or degree thesis. There will be an introduction to the course on Zoom January 19. You should have reviewed the guidelines for the course and ordered the course literature before this meeting. The time for the meeting, the meeting room link, the guidelines and other resources will be available on your course page in Canvas two weeks before the course starts. Please note that the topic of your degree thesis is chosen in consultation with your supervisor and that it must be in line with the guidelines. These are full-time studies, and you must be prepared to devote a lot of time and effort to your degree thesis.
Make sure you order the course literature in good time before the term starts. We will use Akademiskt skrivande (Blomström & Wennerberg 2021) and Forskningsmetodikens grunder: Att planera, genomföra och rapportera en undersökning (Patel & Davidson) as well as HSFR’s Forskningsetiska principer i humanistisk-samhällsvetenskaplig forskning (available online) and APA’s References (available online). Any other literature is decided upon in consultation with your supervisor.
It is important that you log onto Canvas in good time before the course starts, since this will be our main channel for communication. This is where you will find material about our course such as the timetable, instructions, and additional resources. This is also where the course coordinator will post general announcements concerning the course. The email client will be used to send individual messages when necessary. Therefore, check the course page and your email regularly.

After completion of your course a web-based course evaluation questionnaire will be sent to you. Your answers in the course evaluation are very valuable and your comments will help us improve and develop the course for the next implementation. All students registered on the course will receive a course evaluation report where all answers are compiled.
