Master's Thesis Defense

The MA program is completed with the "Master's Thesis Defence" (2.5 ECTS-Credits), which is an oral defense (defensio) of the MA thesis before a committee, which is comprised of three persons. At least one of them must be habilitated and the examiners must come from the respective areas of expertise. 

You can only register for the defense once a positive grade of your MA thesis has been submitted. The defense can then take place three weeks after the registration at the earliest. The "Prüfungsreferat" (Examinations Office) needs this time to check the formal requirements, obtain the necessary signatures, and send out the form for the minutes of the exam.
