The study programme consists of compulsory courses (39 SP) and optional courses (6 SP). The compulsory courses represent the core of the study programme, while the optional courses offer the student the possibility to choose which (professional) direction he/she wants to go, according to his/her personal interests and ambition, and allow for specialization in a certain aspect of the maritime world. The three pillars are represented in both categories and these academic courses are supplemented by the writing of a master thesis (15 SP). The master thesis is a written essay about a maritime or transport oriented subject, wherein the student proves that he can analyse a specific topic thoroughly and individually and write his findings down in a structured and coherent manner. An oral presentation, in which the student clarifies and defends his work, is also included.
