B.A. Thesis and Oral Examination

B.A. Theses

In the final semester, a student is required to write a Bachelor Thesis consisting of about 35 pages about a topic to be decided in consultation with the thesis supervisor. This constitutes part of the Bachelor Examination and serves to assess that a student is competent to handle in an academically satisfactory manner any topic from the field of cultural and religious history of South Asia.
