The master’s thesis process is initiated right at the beginning of the studies. The master’s thesis accounts for 30 credits (800 hrs) and is normally completed in 1-2 years. The Master thesis progresses in a process illustrated in the following chart (pdf, login required).

The master’s thesis may be connected with JAMK’s research, development and innovation activities or the development of the student’s work organisation. A cooperation agreement is drawn up (employer, student, JAMK) on the assignment to be completed. The topic proposal of the master's thesis, instruction on how to prepare a thesis plan and the agreement on cooperation can be found in the Thesis Forms.

Each thesis is required to have a thesis tutor. The thesis tutor is nominated on the basis of a topic.
