20 questions used in the master's and doctoral selection processes

We received, through our surveys, more than 200 possible questions used in the master's and doctorate selection processes.


Here is a compiled with 20 of them.


To make it easier, the questions were divided into 4 blocks: Theme and methodology; Project relevance; Knowledge of the graduate program and academic trajectory.


1 - THEME AND METHODOLOGY


Why did you choose this research object?

How did you delimit the object?

What is your methodology?

Explain to me how your theoretical foundation contributes to the understanding of your research object?

How did you review the literature?

What search engines do you use to obtain your theoretical framework?


2 - PROJECT RELEVANCE


What scientific and social relevance of this project?

What would you not change in this project?

Briefly explain your research project and relevance?

Explain your methodology and the planned execution schedule.

Do you believe you have a good pre-project or are you willing to change the subject?


3 - KNOWLEDGE OF THE GRADUATE PROGRAM


What made you interested in our college?

Do you know our structure: libraries, laboratories, graduate students?

Why did you choose this graduate program and not another?

Why did you choose this program if you come from another area?

Did you contact any of our teachers in advance?


4 - ACADEMIC COURSE


What is your academic trajectory?

Why did you decide to do a Masters/Doctorate?

Are you able to do without the grant? Scholarships are increasingly scarce!

What is your relationship with your theme, do you already have any work in this area?

What contributions can a graduate program bring to your life?

Will you continue with the same line of research as the master's?
