The course is the third semester of history studies. It consists of a larger independent thesis in history amounting to 15 university credits (högskolepoäng) and of coursework aiming toward deepened theoretical knowledge.

The course is divided into three parts: 1. Thesis 15 hp 2. Theory and methods 7,5 hp 3. Optional and specialised literature 7, 5 hp.
