BA Thesis Information

All students are required to do a BA thesis in their main subject. This is done in conjunction with theBA seminar (ENGA1). The supervisor is the seminar teacher.

A Bachelor’s Thesis is a research paper that

  • should be about 20 pages (about 5000 words) long
  • should present a research question and be placed within a theoretical framework and the literature of the relevant field
  • should have a clear structure and chapter division:
    • introduction
    • the body of the text (analysis)
    • conclusion
  • should have a separate title page, contents page, and Bibliography/References/Works Cited
  • should conform to the Department Style Guide (please note the differences between linguistic and literary studies)

The Bachelor’s Thesis is a piece of independent research work. The identification of the topic and research question, the thought and the analysis should be driven by the student. The topic of the thesis has to be agreed with the teacher in charge (the supervisor).

Thesis writing is process writing so the student should be prepared to hand in at least one draft for the supervisor’s comments and suggestions for improvement before submitting the final version of the thesis.

After the thesis has been submitted the student will take a maturity test (kypsyyskoe) based on the thesis.
