This course is compulsory for taking exam in the master programs of Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis and Atmospheric Sciences & Biogeochemical Cycles. The degree thesis is an independent performed project. The student chooses together with a supervisor the subject. Usually the subject is related to actual research at the department, but can also be in cooperation with other institutes outside the university, organisations or companies. The project needs to fit in the given time and can include fieldwork, laboratorium analysis and literature studies.
The results of the research project are published in a scientific report written in English or Swedish and following the rules for (international) publications. The student will also present his/her project results in a seminar with another student as opponent and an examcommittee of two teachers.
Course responsible is Harry Lankreijer. You are welcome to contact him if you have any questions. It is recommended to start early with finding a suitable subject for your thesis project and you can contact teachers for ideas.
