Thesis and thesis seminars

Students write their thesis seminar in their third year. Please find below information on the aims and the thesis coordinator, who can provide you with all necessary information.


The BA International Studies programme provides students with the tools to investigate globalization, and its regional effects, from a humanities perspective. They study these effects through the prism of four disciplinary perspectives: culture, history, politics and economics, coupled with in-depth knowledge of one of eight world regions. The humanities perspective is ensured by placing an understanding of the historic and cultural context central in the programme, and linking this directly to the political and economic conditions. Students learn to apply the acquired knowledge of the four disciplinary approaches in the analysis of a geographical area of their choice with the aid of a language native to that area.


Via the thesis seminar coordinator you will receive all necessary information regarding the thesis seminar(s) you teach. This includes for example guidelines, important dates and evaluation meetings. Every seminar gets its own page on Brightspace. You can login with your LU account.
