In your bachelor paper, you are allowed in principle to follow a topic of one of your module papers Thus you can deal with a topic more deeply and intensively. You have to consider, however, that according to the plagiarism guideline of University of Potsdam §2 (2) c), you should not submit “one and the same paper (or part thereof) without any further identifying marks to various examinations or seminars”. Quoting from your own papers without proper citations would be self-plagiarism. In any case, you should consult this with the supervisor of your bachelor thesis.
All listed examiners of the Department of Jewish Studies and Religious Studies can serve as supervisor for your bachelor thesis. Please take into consideration, however, that according to a decision of the faculty council of the Faculty of Arts, at least one of your supervisors has to be habilitated.
