Papers and essays
Research programmes at Norwegian universities must include the approval of a paper discussing theoretical as well as discipline-specific topics. These essays should focus on one topic and/or a research question which is placed within the framework of the larger academic and theoretical discussion context it is a part of, and is the subject of independent discussion. The essays should demonstrate the ability to discuss and appraise arguments, leading to a conclusion, which often is also relevant to the broader field of theology or the candidate’s own discipline.
The essay must be approved before the student submits the dissertation for evaluation.
