Doel vak

The Master’s thesis should show the student’s advanced ability to
formulate relevant research questions, to find and evaluate information
and data in an independent and critical way, and to write a scientific
thesis within a given period of time. The student must aim at writing a
thesis that, at least, can be reworked into a good, publishable paper.

Inhoud vak

The student selects a research topic and contacts a preferred thesis
supervisor. An attempt will be made to assign the preferred supervisor.
A thesis contract and research plan are drawn and signed.
The thesis can be combined with an internship in the language industry.
In that case the student may conduct research for the thesis in the
context of the internship.
The student hands in drafts of chapters of the thesis, on a regular
basis. The supervisor provides comments on each draft, and clarifies
them in a meeting. All corrected drafts are kept until the thesis is


Interactive meetings with supervisor. Further details will be specified
in the thesis contract.


The supervisor and the second reader will both assess the thesis,
independent of each other. They also grade the thesis. Normally, the
final grade is the average of both these grades. In case of a
considerable difference (more than 2 points), the Examination Board will
appoint a third reader. See the Faculty Thesis Regulations and the MA
Linguistics Thesis Guide for more specific information.
