The final thesis (worth 24 credits) is normally written during the second semester of the second year.
The thesis should present an original piece of theoretical or empirical work, or a complete review of the literature.
The subject area of the thesis is normally chosen by the student who will then agree the specific topic together with the thesis supervisor (relatore). It is advisable that the student should contact and make agreements with the supervisor in advance (normally during the first semester of the second year).
The thesis is normally divided into parts, and the parts into chapters. The chapters can be further divided into sections, normally numbered.
