Instruction for completing the Thesis Proposal

  1. From this semester, the thesis topic must be proposed both on BA and MA level on Neptun electronic learning management system. Here, all students must name the supervisor, provide the working title of the future thesis, and give a short draft about the topic in the Neptun form.
  2. The final title of your finished thesis need not be fully identical to the working title you provide in the proposal. Writing a thesis is a lengthy and complex process: it is quite natural that your initial ideas undergo some changes as you are conducting your research, and such changes often require a reformulation of the title (or the addition of a subtitle to indicate a narrower focus).
  3. The abstract you provide here must be a concise summary of the topic and the key objectives of your thesis. Explain why your chosen topic is important to study, state your research questions, and describe your current ideas about the research method(s) you plan to use, and the results you expect to obtain. The abstract should be written in formal English, and the language should be straightforward and readable. Make sure the abstract does not contain any typing/spelling errors, grammar mistakes or inaccuracies in terminology. The abstract must not contain images, figures or tables.
  4. The length of the abstract must be between 250–300 words and it may be divided into 2–4 paragraphs.
  5. You must list at least 3 sources you are going to cite in your thesis. All sources you provide here must be directly related to your topic and must come from the academic literature: i.e. articles from peer reviewed journals, or monographs, handbooks, textbooks written to an academic (rather than general) audience. All items must be formatted according to the criteria of APA Reference Style, 7th Edition (see here).
