In the fourth semester students write their Master’s thesis. Besides, they attend a final colloquium in which their thesis results are presented and discussed.
The thesis has to be completed within five months (some 25,000 words or 80 pages long, 30 ECTS credits)).
Exemplary topics of the Master’s theses can be found in OSA. Exemplary complete theses can be assessed on the Blackboard of the FU Berlin (only with FU-ZEDAT-account) in the area “Community: Master Sociology – European Societies” under the Sample Papers.
