Different research experiences, in more recent times in social sciences, especially pedagogy, imply different research styles and philosophical approaches that need to be comprehended before conducting research (Bognar, 2008). This paper gives an overview of different research approaches and scientific paradigms within which is possible to create and direct a personal research project (research). The aim and purpose of the paper is to familiarize the different research approaches and different scientific paradigms from the context of methodology of pedagogical research, as well as their presence in the graduate theses of students of the Teacher's Education University. Due to that, 166 graduate theses written and publicly defended by students from Teacher's Education University, from January 2015 to October 2017 have been researched. By examining the students' graduate theses, the following results were obtained: the most represented scientific field were the social sciences, mostly pedagogy (53%) ; according to the types of research the dominant ones were empirical, fundamental, transversal and research of the present. The most widely used research method was a survey (70%), and only two (out of five researched) positivist (82%) and post-positivist (12%) paradigms were noticed (out of five researched). The positivist and post-positivist paradigms are characteristic of quantitative research. The epistemology of these paradigms strives to distancing researchers and subjects of their research, and the purpose of such research is to find an objective knowledge of the reality based on empirically collected data. Methods for collecting data enable precision measurement, quantification, hypothesis testing, and variable control, and the analysis of such data is mainly statistical. This is not entirely in line with the nature of research in pedagogy (53% of the defended theses were from the field of pedagogy) where pedagogical phenomena are mainly researched within qualitative methodology.
