Master's thesis

The Master’s thesis is an individually written scholarly text in which students are expected to contribute, on the basis of independent research, to a specific scholarly debate within the field of Film and Television Studies. In the thesis, students demonstrate their ability to research and analyze a topic of their own choice and report on the findings.

Please note that you can only start writing your Master’s thesis after you have successfully completed at least five courses (25 EC) from semester I. The writing of the thesis, which ideally has a length between 7.000 and 10.000 words, will be supervised by a staff member of the programme who will be assigned to your project when you compose a research proposal in period 2. At the start of period 3, you will present this research proposal to the thesis supervisor and second reviewer, who will decide on whether the proposal can be approved.

For an outline of specific requirements, see our Master’s thesis guidelines (pdf).
