Master’s Thesis

The Master’s Thesis: One's Contribution to Globalization Research

 The master’s thesis is prepared and written during the second half of the second year of study. It is the most important paper students write during the master’s programme. It should be a substantial contribution to the current discussion of globalization.

Topics and Deadlines for Submission

The regulations for the master’s thesis vary slightly between the member universities due to national legislation and local rules. Please contact the local coordinators for specific regulations.

In general, the master’s thesis will be written in English, but another agreement between the supervisor and the student is possible.

During the summer school, students propose a potential topic for their master’s thesis, which will then be discussed with faculty members and students from the second year university. The final decision about the topic and the supervision constellation is made by the local examination board and follows, in most of the cases, the initiative of the students. Students have to submit an exposé to the local coordinator. The exposé must include a description of the state of the art, an attempt to position the topic within the field of global studies, a description of the material to be used, a timetable and bibliography.

The deadline for submitting the master’s thesis is 31 July of the last year of the master’s programme. Students are supposed to submit bounded hard copies and an electronic copy of their thesis.

Supervision and Referee Process

During the summer school, each student is asked to present a potential topic of their master’s thesis. This suggestion is discussed in working groups together with a lecturer of the second-year university. A suggestion for a supervisor is made by the lecturer. The supervisor provides support and guidance to students. As a general rule, students are supervised by one supervisor from the second-year university. However, additional advice from lecturers at other universities of the EMGS Consortium is welcome and can be arranged on an individual basis. The supervisor is also the first reviewer and grades the thesis. A second reviewer is assigned by the respective department.
