Notes: The final examination demonstrates the candidate’s capacity, on one hand, to draft autonomously a research project on a subject identified and developed methodologically under the supervision of a professor of the Master, trying to include elements of multi- and inter-disciplinarity; on the other, to draft a text illustrating the research methods, findings and conclusions. The final exam consists in the elaboration of a written essay (thesis), drafted under the supervision of a professor, and respecting the principles of academic fairness, and of its defence in public, before a master’s commission, whose membership includes the supervisor and a co-supervisor, appointed among the professors of the master’s course or, in case, of different courses or universities. The thesis is written in English and has a length normally comprised between 30,000 and 50,000 words. The defence demonstrates the candidate’s capacity to summarise orally the relevant subjects of her or his research and its most significative findings, in the light of the pertinent scientific debate. The oral presentation includes also a questions and answers phase with the participation of the supervisor, the co-supervisor and any other member of the commission. The commissioners jointly evaluate the research project, its output (ie. the thesis), the oral presentation and the discussion. Based on a proposal submitted by the supervisor and the co-supervisor, in accordance with guidelines on thesis assessment set forth by the master’s council, the commission assigns for the final exam 1 to 7 points, which concur to the final master’s degree mark. If the mark exceeds 110/110, the commission may decide the candidate graduates “cum laude”.
