A graduate thesis is the culmination of the graduate work. Therefore, its topic should be carefully selected and its scientific content should be meticulously developed by the graduate student, in close cooperation with and under the guidance of the thesis advisor. The thesis should be presented in the best possible way and in line with the format and style requirements of the Institute for Graduate Studies in Social Sciences. Please acquaint yourself with the thesis style guidelines of the Institute before starting your thesis. Further guidance and information can be found on the Institute website.
