  • After the first block they choose a definitive track, which will be explored in greater depth in the second period.
  • Students can also enhance their specialisation by attending two track-specific core courses.
  • In the third period, they formulate a thesis research subject while being introduced to research methodology.

Second semester

  • During the second semester, the focus is on writing a thesis, for which thesis workshops will help them in the process of collecting and analysing data.
