The Bachelor’s thesis has to be written in combination with the “Research Seminar Sustainability: Current topics in Circular Economy” (Class: 515RSSMSUSS20, LVA-No.: IQD: 590.014). However, students will formally receive a grade for either SE “Umwelt- und Qualitätsmanagement” (Class: 572URQMUQMS15) or SE “Umwelt- und Ressourcenmanagement” (Class: 572URQMURMS15).

In order to write a Bachelor’s thesis at the IQD, students must have completed the modules “Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten” and “Gender Studies” as well as three courses listed below:

In addition the IQD expects a grade point average (of the three courses) of max. 2.50.
