MA Thesis: General Information  

In order to complete your MA, you need to submit an MA thesis (22,5 ECTS-Credits). The topic of your MA thesis can be chosen from one of four areas: 1) Education Studies, 2) a teaching subject, 3) the didactics of one teaching subject, 4) a specialization. Supervisors are to be chosen from the respective areas of expertise. It is strongly recommended to select interdisciplinary topics.

If the supervisor(s) agree(s), the MA thesis can be written in a foreign language. In the teaching subjects English, French, Italian, and Spanish it must be written in the respective language.

In the module "Conception of the Master's Thesis" (5 ECTS-Credits), the topic, the scope, and the form of the MA thesis are agreed upon on the basis of a brief synopsis (exposé). This module is not a course but is done individually with the supervisor(s).

Final Exam: Information

Defensio (MA)

The MA program is completed with the "Master's Thesis Defence" (2.5 ECTS-Credits), which is a 45-minute 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 area of your chosen MA thesis topic. Your thesis advisor is typically part of the committee.

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.
