Master Degree Project


This course is compulsory for taking exam in the master programs of Physical Geography. The degree thesis is an independent performed project.

Course content

As a student, you choose the subject together with a supervisor. Usually, the subject is related to current research at the department. But it can also be done 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 publications. The student will also present his/her project results in a seminar with usually another student as opponent and an examcommittee of two teachers.
