Master’s thesis is done throughout two semesters/one academic year. During that time, each graduate student is expected to independently work on a chosen research project and apply different methods in their research work. Students are expected to widen their theoretical and practical knowledge in the area of study. Ideally, they should start publishing scientific papers in recognized scientific journals. At the end of their Master’s studies, each student should submit a Master’s thesis and defend it in the form of oral presentation in front of a committee consisted of three juries.
