Bachelor thesis with RSO

The bachelor thesis is the final part of the bachelor programme. This page contains the information needed to plan and start your bachelor thesis at RSO.

Thesis topic

A thesis topic must have a link with the expertise and themes of RSO. These topics have a link with agrarian and rural dynamics, dynamics of food networks and rural images and identities. These themes are further explained on our website.


RSO works with a thesis brochure in which you can find all the different topics that RSO can supervise. From this brochure, BIN students* choose a topic and then book an intake with the thesis coordination. In the intake, we will discuss the procedures and assign a supervisor. The brochure is sent to the BIN students in February. Intakes can be booked by sending an email to

*BGM students follow a different procedure.


Before the start of the thesis, students read the course guide carefully. RSO has also developed a guideline document for writing a thesis with RSO. This document can be downloaded here.
