KLS 3685 Bachelor Thesis - Creative Industries Management
The bachelor thesis is a major independent piece of work in which the students are to demonstrate that they are able to approach a problem and take an overall responsibility for solving it in a productive way. The bachelor thesis constitutes a compulsory part of the study programme. It is to be written in groups of two to three students who are to cooperate on the thesis. In special cases a student may be granted the right to complete the thesis on his/her own.
The student is to be able to master theories, the scientific use of concepts and the use of methods in one or more of the following fields:
- Organization and management of permanent organizations and projects within the creative industries
- Marketing in the creative industries
- Entrepreneurship in the creative industries
- Digitization and technology in the creative industries
- Industry-specific challenges in the live, art & design, and entertainment sectors
- Event management
The student is expected to be able to solve a concrete problem in the cultural area. The student is expected to be able to analyze and reflect on the chosen problem. The student is expected to be able to apply the acquired knowledge critically and analytically. The student is expected to be able to draw conclusions on the basis of theoretical work and empirical data.
Through the bachelor thesis the students are to develop respect for scientific and cultural values, so that after the completion of the programme they have the necessary foundation for honest and trustworthy behaviour in academic and professional contexts.
Students must have in-depth knowledge of their specialization area in cultural management. They must also possess basic knowledge of social science method.
The course ends with an open oral examination where each group presents and answers questions from the examinator.
Students are expected to assume an independent responsibility for the work on the bachelor thesis. A condition for supervision and seminars, therefore, is that the students are prepared for these sessions as a basis for discussions and guidance.
Students have to complete a registration form which states their topic of choice. After that, a supervisor is assigned to the student. The course is completed in one semester and includes both seminars and supervision. See also guidelines for the writing of bachelor theses.
The teaching includes an introductory lecture and four seminars. For each seminar the students must normally prepare and give a presentation and/or hand in relevant material in advance.
Up to three hours of individual supervision are offered for each thesis. The seminars are compulsory. Students who have not participated in the seminars and/or have not submitted relevant documentation, must expect to be called in for an extra interview.
Deviations in teaching and exams may occur if external conditions or unforeseen events call for this.
The students must have in-depth knowledge of their specialization area in cultural management. They must also possess basic knowledge of social science method.
