MSc in Sustainable Development, Management and Policy
About the Defense
In order to successfully complete the MSc thesis requirement, students must defend their thesis in front of a committee. Students may only be admitted to the defense after all required CORE and Focus courses have been passed and following an 'okay' by the thesis supervisor. The date for the defense is set by the supervisor in accordance with the Academic Office, and the thesis defense date will be announced to the MODUL community in a timely manner.
The MSc thesis defense is a public event. Students hold a presentation lasting approximately 20 minutes which is followed by a discussion. A committee set up by the supervisor consisting of at least two persons, at least one of them being a professor, will pose follow-up questions to the student. This committee will make its final assessment of the thesis immediately following the defense.
