The BSc thesis offers the student the opportunity to carry out an individual scientific research in the field of Forest and Nature Conservation, thereby using the knowledge and skills acquired during the BSc programme. Under supervision of a lecturer you will write a research proposal, carry out the research, write the thesis and present and discuss the results at a plenary presentation session. The nature of the BSc thesis research varies widely from an experimental project, a data analysis project or a literature review project. Results will be reported by writing a scientific report or article, and by giving an oral presentation.
