Licentiate thesis, 60 ECTS

Learning outcomes

A licentiate thesis must show the student's familiarity with the field and the ability to independently and critically apply methods of scientific study.


The faculty may approve as a licentiate thesis also a group of peer-reviewed articles or articles accepted for publication on the same array of research questions alongside a summary of them with a presentation of the research goals, methods and results.

The articles may also include joint publications, if the author’s independent work in them can be shown. The thesis author must present to the faculty a declaration of the independent share of work in the joint publications. A declaration signed by the authors of the joint publication is considered acceptable in this case. The declaration must be submitted at the same time when the thesis is submitted for review.
