Admission to the final examination
In order to register for the final master's oral examination, all courses in the curriculum must have been positively completed.
The topic for your master's thesis will be developed during the seminar on the master's thesis in the 3rd semester. The 4th semester is exclusively available to you for the preparation. You have to present the success of the professional training on a scientific basis by independently working out a topic. The master's thesis (28 ECTS) must be submitted in bound form and positively evaluated by the supervisor.
Final master's examination
Oral master's examination: Your final master's degree programme examination consists of the writing of the master's thesis and an examination before a committee. This examination before a committee is worth 2 ECTS and consists of a presentation and defense of your master's thesis, an examination discussion that addresses the cross-connections of the topic of the master's thesis to the relevant subjects of the programme structure, as well as an examination discussion on other curriculum-relevant content.
