> MBC: I beleve usage varies from place to place: "In some countries/universities, the word "thesis" or a cognate is used as part of a bachelor's or master's course, while "dissertation" is normally applied to a doctorate, while in others, the reverse is true". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thesis e.g. at UCL in London (University of London in my day) they normally referred to a bachelor's dissertation and I find this is often the case at English universities, but things are probably different elsewhere. In your shoes I would first check out which university this applies to and then follow usage there.
> V: thanks - this is an abstract for a "diplomova prace" from some unknown Czech university - no clue as to which one - aren't the terms used the same across the board throughout all Czech univeristies? (sort of basing this on the Czech wiki http://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplomov%C3%A1_pr%C3%A1ce)
> MBC: FWIW Česko-anglický pedagogický slovnik by Jan Průcha suggests thesis for diplomová práce and dissertation for disertační práce. No entry for bakalářksá práce, but you will find that here: http://www.fm.tul.cz/dokgrant/cs/data/slovnicek_ak_pojmu.pdf
