The undergraduate examination consists of the discussion of a thesis, before a committee, prepared under the guidance of a thesis advisor and a co-rapporteur.
The thesis may be of the following character:
- may deal with your internship experience
You may choose as a speaker any faculty member of the University who teaches a discipline belonging to a scientific-disciplinary field in which you have taken at least one exam. In case the lecturer does not belong to the degree course, the co-rapporteur will necessarily have to be one.
You may write the paper:
- in Italian
- in another language of the European Union (English, French, German, Spanish), if your supervisor and co-rapporteur agree
To be admitted to the final examination, you must have passed the examinations of all the subjects included in your study plan and obtained the credits related to the other educational activities required by the regulations.
Students are expected to use sources properly, citing them appropriately both in the text and in the final bibliography and always quoting others' words in quotation marks.
In order to counter the misuse of sources available on the web, the texts of the final papers are subjected to an anti-plagiarism check using special software.
If the thesis advisor believes that the student has not used sources correctly, he or she may require the student to revise the thesis in its entirety and, if necessary, to postpone the dissertation to a later session.
