Bachelor's and Master's theses can be started at any time. If you are interested to write your thesis in a specific area, we will try to find a suitable topic for your thesis. Otherwise, we will suggest a topic within our research area. For Bachelor's theses we require successful participation (grade 4.0 or better) in the BW11 exam, for Master's theses we require successful participation in the MW14 exam.
Please email Jacqueline Voß () if you are interested in writing your thesis with us. Please make sure to mention: your full name, your subject of study, in which semester you passed either BW11 or MW14, when exactly you want to start your thesis, and, if applicable, a topic that interests you.
