Teaching and supervision of theses

General information on supervision requests

For basic information on the requirements for your Bachelor's thesis and the procedure for finding a first and second supervisor as well as for preparing a synopsis, please refer to the Moodle course "Bachelor's thesis in social work". Start your request for supervision at least 4 months before registering your Bachelor's thesis. Explain why you are specifically writing to the person from the subject area and where you see a fit for the supervision of your thesis.
Your informed request for supervision should also include

  • an indication of the intended topic or subject area
  • a preliminary research question or possibly other possible questions
  • an initial rough outline and details of the planned approach
  • initial, particularly relevant sources

On the range of topics of the theses I supervise

I am happy to supervise bachelor theses in the following subject areas:

  1. Theories, concepts and methods of child and youth welfare
  2. Diversity and professionalism in social work, in particular dealing with religious plurality
  3. Network-oriented approaches and research methods in social work

In general, I can also supervise Bachelor's theses in thematically related areas; this would then have to be clarified accordingly. Take a look at my past courses by searching the course catalog (also look up previous semesters). In addition, a look at the publications and research projects will give you an impression of the range of topics covered.
