About the course

Course content

The course is primarily built around the individual student's work in formulating a relevant and defined problem formulation, which is investigated analytically through relevant choices of theory, method and material in a Bachelor thesis. This also includes the ability to demonstrate knowledge of previous research in the chosen topic. During the course, the student is given access to individual supervision as well as peer-review seminars that aid in the writing process.

The course concludes with an examination of the thesis seminar, in which students act as opponent to another thesis written within the course, and defends his or her own work.
