Master's thesis

The Master's programme in Conflict Studies and Human Rights requires the preparation of a Master's thesis (of 15 or 30 EC) beginning in the second half of the third term, or at the start of the fourth term of study. The CCS staff provides supervision for the thesis. You are permitted to carry out your research project only after you have produced a detailed research proposal deemed to be satisfactory by your supervisor.


The final deadline for the Master's thesis is firmly set for early August. Failure to turn in a Master's thesis on this date will result in an automatic failure for the entire programme. Only in extreme circumstances, where the student has a clear medical or other valid reason for which written proof has been provided in advance, will an extension be considered.
