Thesis and graduation

The value of the master's thesis is 30 credits. The student's starting score is calculated by means of the weighted average, which can be consulted in MyUniTO, in the "libretto" section.

Students must deliver the thesis to the supervisor professor and, where required, to the co-supervisor professor not less than 15 days before the start date of the graduation session and agree with them on the format, which can be:

  • electronic only
  • paper and electronic

In compliance with the candidates' choices, in the case of a paper thesis, the teachers recommend the use of recycled paper and low-cost cardboard binding.

Simultaneously with the submission, candidates must complete the deposit of the thesis on the University platform and in the graduation session must deliver, before starting the discussion, the certificate of filing, automatically generated by the computer system.
This certificate must be attached by the commission to the degree dossier.
The absence of the certificate will result in the failure of the Student services to validate the final exam.

All information relating to the deposit can be found on the Tesi online page of the University portal (italian version).

The degree thesis must be prepared under the guidance of a supervisor belonging to the integrated study program in Philosophy, unless specifically authorized by the Council of the aforementioned study program and to be presented to the Student services. The dissertation must be prepared under the guidance of a supervisor belonging to the Degree Course, unless specifically authorized, to be requested from the Board of the aforementioned Degree Course for reasons and specifying the nature of the dissertation.

The supervisor is the person in charge of following the student during the elaboration phases of the dissertation. It is necessary to contact the teacher-supervisor well in advance and agree on the subject of the paper with him.
