The final exam consists of the defense in front of a commission of a Thesis written in English.
The dissertation is written under the guidance of a supervisor, preferably a lecturer from a subject in the Master's Degree course, or whose contents are consistent with the course's educational aims. There may also be an external co-supervisor. The work must address topics of the master's degree course of theoretical or practical nature, and meet the criteria of scientificity and originality. It may relate to specific projects carried out during an internship or other training experience, including periods abroad under mobility agreements.
The final exam commission evaluates:
- proficiency in economic, legal, political, sociological and historical research methods
- critical and analytical skills
- ability to present in a clear, complete and organic way.
The number of credits for the final examination is established in the study course's didactic regulation. Procedure, composition of the committees and computation of the degree grade are ruled by the Final examination regulation.
