100,000 text characters for the master's thesis
Hello,

does anyone have experience with the scope of a master's thesis?
The examination regulations for my preferred degree program contain a maximum of 100,000 text characters.
How many pages is this approximately, given scientific criteria (font size, line spacing, etc.)?
Do you understand text characters as the number of letters or numbers?

Thanks!

Greetings Frank

That should be about 50 pages.

? Didn't you have to answer these questions in your bachelor thesis?

50 pages for a master's thesis? To say the least, "a little" doesn't seem like much ...

But I think 50 pages could be added.

I haven't really dealt with it yet, but together with the bachelor thesis it has a comparable scope to a diploma thesis. Or am I wrong? So the 50 pages could fit

50 pages are ok. It depends on what you are writing. In the business administration / economics area in particular, I consider this to be very useful, because otherwise the tendency to ramble increases and the methodology / empiricism fades into the background or is messed up. As a doctoral candidate, you will tend to have more publications at conferences or specialist journals where you will barely reach 50 pages or exactly 50 pages. So it is a good training for solid scientific work later.

That doesn't seem like much to me, computer science is not necessarily known as a babbling subject, and yet our house number was around 80 - 120 pages (without appendix).

That the sum of the two theses should correspond to a thesis would be new to me, especially since the sum of the processing times is significantly greater than for a thesis.
