Master’s thesis is an original and tutored work which is organised as a 12-ECTS course regulated by Reglamento de Trabajos Fin de Grado y fin de Máster de la Universidad de Salamanca and by Normas del Trabajo Fin de Máster en el Máster Oficial en Traducción y Mediación Intercultural approved by the Master’s Academic Commission (vid. infra).
From the list of general topics offered for this course, students shall fill in the form attached below with their interests and possible specific proposals.
Starting with the assignment of a tutor for the Master’s Thesis, a tutorial time period is opened in which students shall specify a research/translation topic and schedule a number of tutorial meetings with the tutor. First compulsory tutorial will be at the end of December or at the beginning of January.
We expressly remind that AUGUST IS NOT A SCHOOL MONTH AND THAT PROFESORS DO NOT CARRY OUT ANY TASK LINKED TO THE MASTER’S THESIS DURING THAT MONTH, consequently guidance and tutoring tasks of the Master’s Thesis will be done exclusively during July. With that in mind, this allows students to finalise their assignments during August with the given instructions and, if appropriate, tutoring professors can make a final revision of the assignments after the holidays before granting, if applicable, the compulsory approval for the submission of the thesiso.
Information on Thesis Defence
Students will be able to defend their Master’s Thesis in ordinary or extraordinary examination, with previous authorisation of the tutoring professor.
- Deposit of the Thesis: beginning of July.
- Oral Defence: mid July.
- Deposit of the Thesis: beginning of September.
- Oral Defence: mid September.
Students shall have 10-12 minutes for their presentation. Audiovisual support is allowed for the presentation. The Concierge staff can provide, via prior request, access to the computers installed in the classrooms to use projectors during your intervention. In this case, it is important to have everything prepared before the time set for the presentation. Thus, it would be desirable to talk to the student who will defend their Master’s Thesis in the same classroom as used in the previous turn.
At the end of the presentations, the Master’s Thesis Evaluation Commission has a similar period of time to pose comments or questions, where appropriate.
