Because it gives students the opportunity to follow their interests and develop their research skills, the thesis is the key to a successful Honours year and prepares students for further research in German language and culture should they wish to continue to the higher degrees, ie the MA or the PhD. The thesis provides students with the opportunity to explore an area of German language or culture which particularly interests them. Students are required to devise and produce a thesis, to explore available resources on and relevant theoretical approaches to their chosen topic, to engage critically with primary and secondary material and to complete their project within a specified time frame. The thesis component of the Honours program is designed to prepare students for further research in German language and culture should they wish to continue to do higher degrees.
