  • A thesis (Often Bachelors/Masters) or dissertation (often Doctoral) [1] is a document submitted in support of candidature for an academic degree or professional qualification presenting the author's research and findings.[2] ( Wikipedia )
The term "thesis" comes from the Greek θέσις, meaning "something put forth", and refers to an intellectual proposition. ( Wikipedia )


  1. Originally, the concepts "dissertation" and "thesis" (plural, "theses") were not interchangeable. When, at ancient universities, the lector had completed his lecture, there would traditionally follow a disputation, during which students could take up certain points and argue them. The position that one took during a disputation was the thesis, while the dissertation was the line of reasoning with which one buttressed it. Olga Weijers: The medieval disputatio. In: Hora est!
