12 The minor subject must be chosen within approved study programmes. The University can decide that permission to choose a minor subject must be admitted by the Academic Study Board of the central subject. The Master s programme consists of one central subject, Comparative public policy and welfare studies. The central subject is planned as a section of 90 ECTS. Please notice that permission to combine the central subject with a minor subject requires an application to the Academic Study Board responsible for the central subject The master s thesis Cf. Sections 19 of the Education Order The master s thesis must document skills in applying academic theory and methods to a specific academic subject. The thesis completes the programme. Under special circumstances, the university may grant exemption from the rule that the thesis must be the final element in the master s programme. The university approves the subject matter and stipulates a deadline for submission of the thesis and a plan for supervision of the student. The thesis must be started and handed in within the time of limit laid down in the curriculum for full time programmes. Is the thesis not handed in within the time limit, the university approves a changed subject matter within the same field and stipulates at the same time a new deadline of three months for submission of the thesis. Is the thesis not handed in within the new time limit, the student may have a third number of examination attempts, cf. The Examination Order. Subject The subject matter of the master thesis must be within the fields of public policy and welfare studies. The master thesis is a major work that must demonstrate independence of thought and analysis. The thesis documents the skills of the student in applying scientific theories and methods within a focused area. The thesis completes the education. Under special circumstances, the university may grant exemption from the rule that the thesis must be the final element in the master s programme. Scope and working The thesis can be made in groups of maximum two students. In such cases it must be made clear who the contribution of each student can be assessed individually. The thesis may have a scope of maximum 80 pages of 2,400 units (including spacing, but excluding annexes, notes, list of contents, and list of literature). If two students write together the scope may be maximum 140 pages. Theses that exceed these limits are not accepted. The number of units must be given on the front page of the thesis. Odense of 19
13 Registration A students and a supervisor must write up a thesis contract on the basis of a template. When signed by both parties the contract is submitted to the study secretariat together with a plan for supervision also made by the student and the supervisor. The study director approves the formulation of the thesis contract and sets a deadline six months after the data of signing the contract. The student is then automatically registered for the thesis exam. If the student fails to submit the thesis within the six months, then an extension of three months will be granted. This counts as the second exam attempt. If the student fails to submit the thesis within the new time limit, then another extension of three months will be granted. This counts as the third and final exam attempt. Submission and exam The student/students submit the thesis in four copies at the study secretariat (Studiekontakten). The thesis is assessed with external examiner after the 7 point grading scale. The thesis must contain a two page summary that counts toward the space limits Project-oriented studies and study abroad Cf. Section 22 of the Education Order Under rules stipulated in the curriculum for each programme, the Master s programme may within the prescribed period of study contain project-oriented studies, possibly associated with areas outside the university, in Denmark or abroad. 10 or 20 ECTS of the elective subjects may be taken through project-oriented studies. The purpose of the project-oriented studies is to integrate practical, political and administrative questions into the master programme. Project-oriented studies encompass minimum 2 months and maximum 6 months of study relevant work in a private company, interest organisation, public authority or body, or at a research institution. Large parts of the work must be relevant working tasks for the programme. The students must prior to start of studies get approval of a supervisor and the Academic Study Board. To get final approval and merit of the studies the student writes a report that is approved by the supervisor. If the project-oriented studies are to be approved as one subject of 10 ECTS the report must be 5-10 normal pages of 2,400 units. The report details the work undertaken and this relates to topics within the master programme. If the project-oriented studies are to be approved as two subjects of 20 ECTS the report must be normal pages of 2,400 units, equivalent to a seminar assignment, that accounts and discuss academically relevant aspect of the work undertaken. Moreover, the stay has to be at least 3 months. Odense of 19
