This study aimed to determine what final-year geography students thought about bachelor’s theses and what problems they experienced during the writing process. The sample consisted of 55 final-year students (37 women: 18 men) from the geography department of Tokat Gaziosmanpaşa University in the 2019-2020 academic year. The study adopted a mixed research design. Data were collected using a questionnaire and an interview form. The quantitative data were analysed using number and percentage distributions, while the qualitative data were analysed using descriptive analysis. For participants, the greatest challenges of preparing a bachelor’s thesis were collecting data (f=29), writing (f=24), choosing a topic (f=17), and deciding on the right method (f=17). They also stated that they did not receive enough support from their thesis advisors. Universities should offer more applied courses on conducting scientific research and writing bachelor’s theses. There should be more collaboration and interaction between students and thesis advisors.
