Diploma Thesis

Thesis defence

The Thesis Defence follows two semester-long diploma seminars, during which students acquire the necessary skills to write their own academic project, which they may submit as a master’s thesis. During the defence, students are assessed by their proven ability to both deal with the chosen theme and to orally present the results of their work, by responding to comments from the opponents as well as to questions posed by the examiners. In their theses, students should be able to prove that they have met the basic demands required to master the defined problem.

This includes the following abilities: to clearly articulate the initial situation or problem; to articulate their intentions and goals; to characterize and justify their choice of methodology and the procedures used to implement planned procedures adequately; to document and collect the necessary data and knowledge required to interpret their results; to formulate clear and well-founded conclusions; to present these conclusions in accordance with academic standards; and to work with footnotes and references.
