Research Support Program


The program aims to support students in the research process focusing primarily on the completion of their master’s thesis or dissertation, with the following specific objectives:

1. Assist students in developing and enhancing their learning through subject-based research and inquiry.

2. Provide pedagogical guidance to students’ engagement in research.

Emphasis is made on high-level thinking skills wherein students critically examine the works of others, synthesize and organize ideas from various sources, plan their fieldwork and laboratory experiments, and write reports.
