Theses in European Studies


At the Centre for European Studies (CES) both Bachelor and Master theses are produced. In order to create the best possible opportunities for students to independently formulate and process research questions in the interdisciplinary subject of European Studies, and to ensure a legitimate assessment, routines for supervision and collective assessment and grades have been developed.

The students’ work with the theses is entirely individual, and they choose their subjects themselves. However, in support of the writing and inspiration for subject choices, seminars are offered within the framework of the theses courses, as well as the students being assisted in finding a suitable supervisor from any of the subjects involved in the programmes. Since a scientific basic principle is that the review and assessment of scientific work is performed by someone other than the person involved in the actual work, the supervisor’s participation ceases as the student submits his or her thesis for examination. The theses are vented at seminars that are also included as part of the examination.

As the basis for grading of the thesis work is that, in addition to the venting at the seminar, two assessors’ views, one of which is also the chairman of the seminar, and a collective discussion at a so-called grading meeting, where all the assessors of the semester participate and the grades of all papers are discussed and determined. The assessor is taken from another discipline than the supervisor, but the co-assessor has the same subject discipline as the supervisor.

This model for assessment and grading of theses has been developed on the basis of CES’ standpoints on the subject content of European Studies, scientific approach and quality and legitimacy within an inter-disciplinary environment.
