Offered Theses

 I strongly suggest you find subjects you are passionate about when writing a proposal. Generally, Bachelor proposals should be 2-3 pages long and Master proposals 3-5 pages long (12 font, 1.5 line spacing). For Bachelor proposals you are expected to find a research gap, formulate a research question, find some literature on the subject and potentially describe some of the empirical methods you plan on using to obtain your results. The Master proposals on the other hand should contain on top of the Bachelor proposal requirements a much better researched gap in the literature, one or multiple (related) research questions, the concrete methodology you plan on using, the preliminary literature list and eventually a timeline for the whole Master Thesis.
