Final project

What is

To be admitted to the final examination, you must have regularly attended the educational activities and earned the credits required by the regulations.

The final paper may consist of:

  • a theoretical-critical paper demonstrating your mastery of the topic, using your research skills, approach skills, of critical evaluation and the identification of other lines of research development
  • constructing and fine-tuning software and active techniques with theoretical and research references
  • designing educational, reeducational and training interventions, in the form of project work

You will be able to write your thesis, as well as in Italian, in an EU language.


You will have to do your paper under the supervision of a lecturer in the Department of Education or an external lecturer who holds a teaching position in the Bachelor of Science in Education and Training or the Master of Science in Pedagogy degree program.


You will need to start preparing your paper at least five months before the date of submission of the paper to the lecturer, which must be at least one month before the graduation session.

Admission to the final examination is, however, linked:

  • to the application for the lecturer's assignment
  • to the filing of the title


What to do to graduate

If you are an undergraduate you must:

  1. Deposit the title of the thesis
  2. Choose the graduate session
  3. Fill out the AlmaLaurea questionnaire online

Your paper is reviewed by a graduate committee, which evaluates it with a score in hundredths. The committee, appointed by the Department Director, has a maximum of 6 points available to add to the weighted and rounded average of your exam grades (expressed in hundredths).

Of these 6 points:

  • 1 point is awarded ex officio if you are a current graduate
  • 1 point is awarded ex officio if you have at least 3 exams in your curriculum passed with top marks and honors
  • 1 additional point can be awarded if you have at least 6 exams in your curriculum passed with top marks and honors
  • the remaining 3 points are available to the committee, which awards them based on the evaluation of the paper

If you spent a period of study abroad under the Erasmus program, you will also be awarded in the calculation of your graduation grade:

  • 1 point if you have finished your studies within the first year out of the program, provided that during Erasmus you have earned at least 12 CFUs
  • 2 points if you have finished the study abroad program in progress, provided that during Erasmus you have earned at least 12 CFUs
