Thesis

Attention: This information is from August 2017. Please always check with the examination office as well.

Bachelor Thesis

If you are interested in writing your bachelor thesis at our institute, please notice the following information.

The allocation of the bachelor thesis topics is done in the following way:

You fill in the application form (Link) and, together with your actual transcript of records and curriculum vitae, you either hand it in at the secretary of the chairs Liesenfeld/Wied (Ms. Christiane Schmiedl, SSC building, room 4334) or send it via e-mail to dwied at uni-koeln.de. After receiving your documents, a topic (if you have not suggested one, see below) and an advisor will be allocated to you. The advisor will contact you to discuss your topic with you. In case that the topic is not acceptable for you, we once(!) offer you an alternative topic. We try to consider your preferences and the central focus of your studies. Please notice that candidates who have already taken our specialisation Quantitative Methods in Economics and Social Sciences are preferred and will typically receive a topic. Students who have not taken our specialisation may also receive a topic. The requirement for our topics are usually based on the knowledge which are gained in the specialisation.  The time allowed for the completion of the thesis can be chosen by the students, as long as it is possible for the advisor, and takes a total of 12 weeks.

 

In exceptional cases we allow students to work on your self-chosen topic. If you want to suggest a topic, please add a short proposal including bibliographical references. Then we will decide, possibly after a conversation, whether we supervise the suggested topic.
