FINAL RESEARCH PROJECTS OF SOCIAL SCIENCES MASTER DEGREES: A PROPOSAL FOR IMPROVEMENT

This work provides a proposal of improvement of the methodology applied when developing and carrying out a social sciences master final research project. Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV) regulation states that Post Graduate programs should be oriented to advanced, specialized and multidisciplinary learning in the areas of academic research and professional training. These statements make clear that students should be trained in research; however, some evidence does suggest that teaching in Master level is more orientated to professional fields while the research area is left further to Doctoral Programs. In our opinion, research and academic views are not opposite although some students think that a research project can not be an applied or empirical one. Therefore, and although this experience is only based on these masters, some conclusions can be drawn from them, as well as about methodology, evaluation system and improvement issues. Our main objective is to enhance the process in order to improve objectivity and results.
