Final Theses

The basis for the first discussion of the thesis is a 2-3 page synopsis in which you present your research interest, research object and theoretical-conceptual foundations of your work as well as - in the case of an empirical project - the planned methodological approach and establish connections to existing research debates in geography. 
Appointments for consultation hours can be made via doodle. Please send the synopsis by e-mail at least two days before the consultation date.
