The purpose of the Master’s Final Project (MFP) is for the student to grapple with a case involving research, evaluation and intervention that is related to the activities carried out in the external practicum modules or the avenues of research conducted by the faculty of the Master’s programme. This project will have a supervisor who will monitor it through tutorials in seminar sessions. The role of the supervisor can include guiding students through the general programming of the activities they must carry out in order to successfully complete the MFP. The seminar sessions are held in small groups to foster cooperative learning. The projects must be presented and defended in a public academic forum in which the students must present their projects to a panel and answer the question that the panel believes require further elucidation.
The MFP can be written in either Catalan or Spanish, although the EGA of the Master’s and doctorate may authorise it to be presented in another language with a prior written request submitted to the supervisor. In this case, the project must have an abstract written in Catalan or Spanish. The MFP must be publicly defended before a panel made up of professors in the Master’s programme, some of whom must be PhDs. The student will have ten minutes to defend their project. They should prioritise the aspects that they deem the most important and make a clear, precise and comprehensive summary of it. Once this presentation is over, the student must respond to any observations, comments and questions from the members of the panel.
The criteria for evaluating the Master’s Final Project refer to the competences attained during the process of developing it, the final product and its defence. For this reason, the final evaluation will be the outcome of different partial evaluations:
The final mark of the project will be issued by the panel in an official grade report.
