Here you see that the overall objective states exactly how you intend to address your problem: “I want to find the answer to problem A, by completing action B”.
You then have to explain or detail action B through a set of specific objectives (usually between two and four), e.g.: Each specific objective consists of one infinitive sentence and should be phrased in a way that makes it possible to draw a conclusion from within the scope of the thesis.
Don’t worry; this is all part of the research process.
This blog will look at writing an ‘Aim’ statement and ‘Objectives’ for a Master’s thesis, but should also be helpful for final year projects at undergraduate level.
There will be one overall AIM statement as described here.
Sometimes a research project may contain several distinct aims, however they need to fit together to an overall research AIM.
