Master's Thesis International Crimes, Conflict and Criminology


Course Objective

By writing your thesis, you should be able to prove to be able to
independently initiate and conduct an interdisciplinary research project
in the field of international crimes and conflict related crimes. You
will have to set up a research design, use the right methodological
approach, analyze the data and draw the correct conclusions. Students
will be supervised by a member of the academic staff and will thus get
individual feedback on their research plans and progress.

Course Content

All master students have to write a master thesis in order to finish the
program. The thesis is 18 ECTS, which stands for approximately 504 hours
of work. Based on a 40-hour work-week this amounts to roughly 3 months
full-time work.

Teaching Methods

Your thesis supervisor will offer guidance on selecting and demarcating
your subject, discuss your progress, and assess the final product with
the second reviewer. Please note that students should be able to
independently write a thesis on a Master’s level. The supervisor is
there to give feedback and redirect if necessary. Each student will, in
principle, have approximately 6 feedback sessions during the thesis
writing process.

Method of Assessment

A master thesis is the written report of your final research project and
will be the culmination of your year's study.
Each thesis will be assessed by the thesis supervisor and the second
reviewer independently from each other. The two assessors will decide
upon the final grade of your thesis in consultation.
