Description The purpose of the M.Sc. degree is to provide advanced training in an area of specialization, with a particular emphasis on the acquisition of experience in the strategies and experimental methods of modern, original, scientific research. To qualify for the M.Sc. degree each candidate must complete specified course work, submit a satisfactory thesis based on his/her research, and successfully defend it in a Departmental examination. The M.Sc. thesis should contain research demonstrating that the student has mastered the techniques in a specialized area of research and can design and carry out controlled informative experiments in this area. The M.Sc. thesis should not be required to contain a finished piece of research but should be a competent report of the student's mastery of certain relevant techniques and their application to a specific problem. Within the thesis and its defence, the student should also demonstrate a command of the subject matter in his/her area of research and in related areas of Immunology.
