The final examination of the Bachelor’s degree course: guidelines for drafting your dissertation

The Bachelor’s degree course of study ends with the discussion of a final dissertation, which aims to summarise the competencies acquired by the student over the three years. Its purpose is to certify the achievement of an adequate command, on the one hand, of the disciplinary knowledge that characterises the course of study; on the other, the development of a given topic and the student’s writing abilities management of documentary sources and, not least, capacity to proceed independently. The final exam is designed to provide the graduate student with an opportunity to put into practice some of the theory of the three-year degrees: first and foremost, the opportunity to combine basic academic training with professional training.

The final exam of the Bachelor’s degree course consists of the discussion, in front of a special exam commission, of a written dissertation that explores a theme chosen by the student.

The thesis (Master’s, Specialised and Five-Year degree courses): guidelines

The Master’s course of study concludes with the preparation and defence of a thesis, which certifies the acquisition of knowledge and expertise in the field of study and advanced training, demonstrating judgment skills and ability in scientific research. The master’s thesis must therefore be interpreted as the result of research, which need not necessarily be empirical provided it is original. The thesis, starting from the current situation of the research subject, and therefore based on a knowledge of the literature and the state of the scientific debate, must then go further and actually make an original contribution on the part of the student to the study of the chosen topic. It must above all be seen as an autonomous production of content, it must be scientifically and methodologically founded, and it must not resort to any form of plagiarism. The exam consists of the discussion, before a special commission, of a written thesis, which explores a theme chosen by the student, developed independently by the student under the supervision of a tutor.
