RoME Theses

In order to earn a Master’s degree students have to write an original research piece in the field chosen jointly with their supervisor who helps in identifying a suitable research topic and oversees the progress of the student. The project of the Master's Thesis, as well as the preliminary and final drafts, are discussed in public presentations in front of RoME faculty.

Here we present the Master's Theses that in each graduating cohort were judged as best by the RoME faculty.
