Master thesis

During the Master thesis period, students work in a team of 3 to 5 students under the coordination of one institution. Each of the students is responsible for a subtopic covering a different discipline within the field of comparative vertebrate morphology.

During the Master thesis, students need to bring all the knowledge and technical skills into practice, need to get acquainted with current developments in the various disciplines of comparative morphology and acquire the necessary skills for functioning as a researcher or advisor in a professional context.

Because they work in a team and because the students approach one scientific question from different angles, students need to integrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired during the compulsory and elective courses. Since the students have chosen different elective courses, the dissertation will offer them the possibility to exchange knowledge and skills of the different elective courses.
