Requirements for Bachelor and Master Theses


Bachelor's and Master's theses are usually empirical papers that are linked to the research competencies of the department. The above list of topics is not exhaustive and suggestions for topics by students will be considered.

The time required for the Bachelor's thesis corresponds to half a semester of full-time study, the actual processing time can of course be spread over a longer period of time. The scope of the written thesis should be between 20 and 40 pages. The formal design of Bachelor theses follows the guidelines for manuscript design of the DGPs or APA. For all theses, documentation of the statistical data evaluation (data and syntax files used, any result files and documentation) on CD-ROM or a USB stick is expected. Due to the short implementation time, Bachelor theses are usually linked to ongoing projects of the department. The supervision of the Bachelor thesis is partly carried out within the curriculum in the courses "PSQ Project Organisation" (5th semester) and "PSQ Presentation of own research" (6th semester). A supplementary attendance of the course "Research-oriented Consolidation" (5th or 6th semester) is recommended.

The time required for the Master's thesis corresponds to one semester of full-time study, whereby the working hours are spread over one year. The written length of the Master's thesis is approximately 50 pages. The formal design of Master's theses follows the guidelines for manuscript design of the DGPs or APA. For all theses, documentation of the statistical data evaluation (data and syntax files used, possible result files and documentation) on CD-ROM or a USB stick is expected. Master's theses may also include independent data collection if necessary. The supervision of the master thesis is partly carried out in the course "Seminar Project Supervision" (3rd or 4th semester). A supplementary attendance of the course "Research-oriented Consolidation" (3rd or 4th semester) is recommended.
