Course contents

The main part of the degree project course consists of independently carrying out a scientifically based investigation assignment, resulting in a written thesis. To ensure relevant, interesting and well-founded results, the work is based on knowledge of the topic and it develops new knowledge by means of scientific theories and methods. A good degree project requires an interplay between theory, method and empiricism, requiring the student to move metaphorically and literally between the employer's world and the academic world.

As a support, the department offers continuous supervision and a series of seminars throughout the degree project. The continuous discussions of the degree project, in individual talks with supervisors and in seminars, is a very important part of the course.

Intended learning outcomes

 After passing the degree project course, the student should be able to:

  • demonstrate the ability to develop and explain knowledge of the scientific basis, a deep understanding of current research and development and deep method knowledge of the chosen subject area
  • search, collect and integrate knowledge systematically and identify needs of additional knowledge
  • identify, analyse, assess and handle complex phenomena, issues and situations, even with limited information
  • plan and with adequate methods carry out qualified assignments within given time frames, and evaluate this work
  • account clearly too and discuss his conclusions, knowledge and arguments orally and in writing in dialogue with different groups
  • make assessments in the field of media technology informed by relevant disciplinary, social and ethical issues
  • show such skill that is required to participate in research and development or to work independently in other qualified activities
