The objective of the module is that students will be able to apply their knowledge within European studies and international relations at a specialised level.
The fourth semester of the Master’s programme is reserved to writing the thesis; students will work in detail on an issue related to European studies and international relations.
The course coordinator must approve the topic of the thesis, and a deadline for submission will be set. If students have opted for a full specialisation within Chinese Area Studies, Latin American Area Studies or Global Gender Studies, the topic of the thesis must be within the chosen specialisation.
The Master’s thesis will be written on the basis of supervision, but students must organise their own thesis process and choose their topic/problem and find relevant literature and source material of their own accord.

Skriftlig og mundtligThe module will be completed by an external oral examination on the basis of the submitted written thesis, which may have been prepared individually or in cooperation with other students. The examination will take the form of a conversation between the student(s), the examiner and the external examiner on the basis of the Master’s thesis written by the student(s). The Master’s thesis must be a minimum of 35 pages and may not exceed 70 pages when written individually. When two students write their thesis together, it must be a minimum of 50 pages and may not exceed 100 pages. When three students write their thesis together, it must be a minimum of 65 pages and may not exceed 130 pages.
Proportional weighting: The Master’s thesis/the written work is considered the shared responsibility of the group. The Master’s thesis constitutes the basis for the examination and assessment of the oral performance.
