- We expect your thesis to relate to the existing literature while independently and critically examining and extending it. In general, more emphasis is placed on extending existing research in a Master's thesis than in a Bachelor's thesis. Methodologically, papers in various fields are conceivable. It is important to us that you write a thesis on a clearly defined topic for which you are intrinsically motivated and that the method you choose is well aligned with your research questions.
- In many cases, a good idea for a thesis is to take one particular piece of existing literature, replicating its findings, and extending them where appropriate. Again, more weight is given to the extension in a Master's thesis than in a Bachelor's thesis. In any case, especially in the case of such a replication study, the selection of the underlying research paper is of crucial importance. The research paper can be a publication in a scientific journal, a scientific book or a scientific report. We are happy to advise you on the selection, but it is important that you contact us with a concrete proposal, or at least a concrete idea of the topic.
- To register a thesis it is important to contact us in time. In the best case you should contact us by 15.03. for the spring semester or by 15.09. for the fall semester. To do so, please write an email with your topic request to the desired supervisor. Important: please briefly explain in the email your motivation, the choice of topic and, if applicable, the underlying research work, and outline your draft work with the help of an exposé (length between half a page and one page). These deadlines are important, as they are the only way we can plan our supervisory activities for the coming semester and support you accordingly.
- You will receive a response to your request within one week after the above deadlines. The final coordination of the topic will then take place in dialogue with the supervisor on the basis of your exposé.
- For most study programs, part of the final thesis is the obligatory attendance of the Bachelor/Master colloquium. We use the colloquium to provide you with information about the preparation of scientific theses and for scientific exchange about the final theses.
- The evaluation criteria of the thesis will be provided to you in advance. We recommend a final feedback discussion after submission.
