BA Theses

To write your BA thesis at American Studies Leipzig, you need two advisers from the list of BA advisers below. Please carefully familiarize yourself with the deadlines and with the procedures for choosing an adviser. Please note that thesis advisers have limited capacity, so it is best to start the conversation early.

Specifically, please note that you will need to 1) work with an adviser to identify a potential topic before you b) write a proposal, which, if approved, will allow you to hand in the necessary paperwork with the Prüfungsamt. The BA Thesis Guidelines spell out the process in detail:
