Our Offer of Supervision

In our department, we regularly supervise final theses, especially state examination theses. We attach great importance to giving all students who write their thesis with us a practical insight into empirical research. Further information, including deadlines and currently advertised topics, can be found here.

  • Collaboration in our ongoing research projects
  • Supervision during the writing of a scientific thesis in an interesting, interdisciplinary research environment
  • Method seminar/research colloquium for state examination thesis

For all students writing a state examination thesis in our department (initial supervision), a methods seminar/research colloquium is offered in cooperation with Educational Psychology, in which each state examination thesis should be presented at least once.

The event takes place every semester, always on Thursdays from 13:30-15:00h. 

Registration is via your supervisor, or by e-mail.

In accordance with the denomination of the professorship, we exclusively supervise empirically oriented thesis.
