Inhoud vak

During the last three months of the Master's program (April-June),
students write up their Master's thesis, in which analyze their
empirical data and link it up with anthropological theory. Throughout
this period students receive supervision from their individual
supervisors. Besides that, they participate in thesis writing seminars,
also called Graduate seminars (GS). Graduate seminars are workshops and
lectures that guide them through the writing process of their their
thesis, till the day of submission of their finalized version. GS will
complement the supervision that you receive from your supervisor(s) and
will assist you in incorporating their views during your writing
process.
