Answer: Would you like to use statistics in your thesis? Maybe you want to run an experiment? Perhaps you would like to interview people? Or, maybe you really want to do a Literature Study? No problem: the method explained in ThesisCore can be applied to all types of research.
ThesisCore is primarily concerned with developing your research idea and writing your thesis. Furthermore, the course offers practical tips for your chosen research method such as: “Which articles should I include in my Literature Study”, “Which statistical model should I use” or “Where can I find interview questions”. Note however that the course does not discuss how to apply your chosen research method, such as how to design your experiment or survey, or how to use statistics and statistical software. That is left up to you. However, you are encouraged to choose a research method that you are familiar with through your Bachelor’s or Master’s study.
