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 www.ruralsociologywageningen.nl.
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 books 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 emailing Thesis.RSO@wur.nl.
*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 assessed here.
