BA Thesis Guidelines

To complete the BA of the Teacher Training program, a bachelor's thesis must be written in each teaching subject and/or specialization. This means that, if one of your subjects is English, you need to write one BA thesis in English. This thesis is written as part of a course but nonetheless in addition to all the other course work and the course instructor is also your thesis supervisor. 

Please note: It is important to ask the course instructors whether they can supervise your thesis. Ideally you should do this  via email before the semester starts or, at the latest, during the first course session.

Courses

You can choose to write your BA thesis in one the following courses:

  • PS American Literature
  • PS Critical Area Studies: American Cultures
  • PS Cultural Studies: American Cultures

  • PS British and/or Postcolonial Literature
  • PS Critical Area Studies: British and Anglophone Cultures
  • PS Cultural Studies: British and Anglophone Cultures

  • PS The Acquisition of English in a Multilingual Context
  • PS Systemic and/or Applied English Linguistics

  • PS Learning/Teaching Languages
  • SE Learning/Teaching Languages
  • VU Introduction to Testing and Assessing in Teaching Foreign Languages
  • UE Language-Specific Course for Testing and Assessing English
  • VU Selected Aspects for Advanced Study of the Introduction to Testing and Assessing in Foreign Language Teaching

Guidelines

A BA thesis is 20 to 27 pages (double-spaced, from "Introduction" to "Conclusion") in length and is equivalent to 5 ECTS-credits. Theses must be written in English and include the "Declaration of Academic Integrity" ("Eidesstattliche Erklärung)." 

The thesis supervisor will assess your thesis according to the official criteria and submit a combined grade for your thesis and the course. Make sure to send the completed form "Proof of BA thesis" ("Nachweis über die BA-Arbeit") along with your thesis, which your thesis supervisor will submit to the 'Prüfungsreferat.'

The thesis has to have a cover page that includes the following information: student name, student registration number, name of the course instructor, course title, semester of course attendance, and date of submission.

For information regarding citation style, formatting, submission deadlines, and the like, contact your thesis supervisor and follow their instructions precisely.
