Final project

What is

The dissertation examination consists of the discussion of a research thesis prepared under the guidance of a faculty advisor and subjected to critical examination by a co-rapporteur.

The thesis should develop content:

  • original
  • critically crafted
  • clearly expressed and argued
  • framed in an up-to-date critical landscape

To be admitted to the final examination, you must have passed the examinations of all the subjects included in your syllabus and earned the credits related to the other educational activities stipulated by the regulations.

What to do to graduate

If you are an undergraduate you must:

.

The Departments of the Humanities Area of the School of Humanities provide 7 appeals, distributed as follows:
June - July - October - November - December - February - March

.

The first useful session to be able to graduate in the last academic year of enrollment is June. The last useful session is in March of the following year.

If you are an undergraduate student, you must submit the thesis title filing form at least six months in advance of the session chosen for discussion.

The title entered on the form is considered provisional; the final title will be the one entered on the degree application. If you have to change the title substantially, for example, if you change the thesis topic or the thesis advisor and/or co-rapporteur, you will have to file the form again, with possible re-filing of the terms.

The form, duly completed and also signed by the thesis advisor, should be sent to email tesiarealettere@unige.it.

To register for the graduation exam, about 2 months before the session, the service for filling out the online graduation application opens.

The graduation application is filled out online from Student Portal (UnigePass authentication is required), at the same time as filling out the AlmaLaurea questionnaire.

The graduation application approved online by the Lecturer NOT must be delivered to the Student Desk, as well as it is not necessary to deliver the receipt of completion of the AlmaLaurea questionnaire.

By the graduation application deadline, remember to:

.

Non-registration of exams and other educational activities does not prevent the online completion and confirmation of the graduation application.

You can make payment of the graduation stamp only after confirming the online graduation application.

In order to graduate, however, you will have to check that everything is registered online.

You can check your status by accessing the Graduation Dashboard.

By the deadlines indicated in the table with deadlines, you must deliver to your Rapporteur and Correlator a copy of the paper, in the manner agreed upon directly with the lecturers (delivery of a bound copy or transmission by e-mail or other service such as Wetransfer).

You also need to upload the pdf file of the thesis to the dedicated portal and enter the abstract in Italian and English. The guide to uploading the thesis is available in the portal.

By the deadline for submitting your dissertation you must verify that you have returned any library materials you may have borrowed from the libraries. To do this, log on to your Online Services portal > Webstudents

Compilation of questionnaires of teaching evaluation is an important tool to bring out any critical issues and weaknesses of the courses of study.

If you are a regularly enrolled student, you can fill out the annual evaluation questionnaire for your course of study at the end of each academic year.

N.B. The annual evaluation is not available for students enrolled out of course.

You can apply for graduation only after you have completed the annual teaching evaluation questionnaire (unless the deadline has passed: then there is no block).
