SDU Guides for writing a thesis and/or finding a topic (desværre kun på engelsk lige nu).
How to find a topic for your thesis
- Go back to the literature for the courses that you had on your Master's programme and get inspired - then search the library (see below) to see if this is a topic for which you can find research articles.
- Visit the Jobbank to find thesis proposals from firms and other organizations. If you find an interesting offer, then check whether it is suitable for your profile and if you can get an academic angle onto the proposal.
- Get inspired by looking at theses from this and other universities. Find them at the library (see below).
Remember to visit the library. Here you can look at the best materials, get access to electronic books and articles, and borrow books.
Each semester, there are several workshops on library resources for you Master's thesis. Find dates and further information via the spot to the right.
