Master students from the year of 2015/2016
Master students join CHILD research projects while writing theses
 

The one-year and two-year master program Interventions in Childhood is closely connected to ongoing research projects in the Child Research Group. This year the students write their master theses in form of systematic literature reviews. The intention is that their theses are connected to ongoing research projects.

The one-year and two-year master program Interventions in Childhood is closely connected to ongoing research projects in the Child Research Group. The program consists of four specializations: Disability Sciences, Health and Care Sciences, Special Education, and Welfare and Social Sciences, which require a broad competence within the field of Interventions in Childhood. Most regular teachers in the program are active researchers in CHILD within these specializations and can therefore discuss their current projects with the students. In addition, international researchers involved in CHILD research actively participate in teaching, primarily via streamed lectures or guest lectures, and contribute with their specific knowledge about methods and empirical findings related to the specializations in the program.
 

The second semester, the students write their master thesis in the form of a systematic literature review. The intention is that their theses are connected to ongoing research projects. The supervisors are, as far as possible, part of the research project and knowledgeable in the subject matter. For this year, the students’ essays have been related to projects such as longitudinal studies of every day functioning in adolescents with long term health conditions/impairments, inclusion of refugee children in preschool and early years in compulsory school, or factors increasing the food intake in children with cancer undergoing chemotherapy. During this fall, the first round of students are starting the second year in the program and we are looking forward to their empirical studies and how they can contribute to CHILD research in the field of interventions in childhood.




NOTE: All master theses will be published on CHILD’s web page during the course of the Summer, www.ju.se/child
