The objective of the Final Degree Project is that students develop a research project related to any of the subjects studied in the Degree. To do so, the student will apply the scientific methodology learned during the Degree. In the realization of this work, the student will need to choose a topic of interest, and subsequently identify a research problem that can be posed through one or several questions. In the TFG, the student will try to provide answers based on logical reasoning and using the methods of analysis learned during their studies.
For the elaboration of the work, students will have a personal tutor. There are two ways to establish and develop the relationship with the tutor:
- GENERAL modality: the professors of the area will offer to tutor a predetermined number of Final Degree Works, each one offering a topic related to the contents of the Degree. Within this topic, a more specific object on which to carry out the work will be sought.
- SPECIFIC modality: this is a work on a specific topic to be carried out by a single student under the supervision of a professor of the University. Students who wish to carry out this type of work must first contact the professor they would like to act as tutor, who must previously accept it.
In general, and except in exceptional cases, all Final Degree Projects in Political Science will be carried out in the GENERAL modality.
