12999 Thesis in Democracy Studies
Students who have met the requirements of the thesis track may propose a topic for a thesis to the MA academic advisor for approval. Toward the end of their studies, students will finalize a topic together with the head of the MA program. Consistent with the topic, a thesis advisor will be assigned. After the advisor approves the proposal, the student will submit it to the MA thesis committee.
Two years are allocated for writing the thesis. In certain cases, the thesis committee can grant an extension. The student can change the thesis topic only with the approval of the thesis committee. When the thesis is completed, the student defends it before the advisor and an additional examiner.
