Bachelor Thesis

General Information

  • The Bachelor thesis has to be original scientific work written within the framework of a seminar of one or more of the chosen modules. The topic of the bachelor's thesis can be based on a proposal by the teacher of the seminar or can be proposed by the student itself. It has to follow the structure of a scientific publication.

  • The bachelor thesis is awarded with 6 ECTS, whereby the required amount of work has to meet this workload. A sufficient mark for the bachelor's thesis can only be awarded when the seminar forming the basis of the bachelor thesis, is completed with a sufficient mark. The evaluation of the bachelor thesis is independent of the evaluation of the seminar.
