Sammanfattning: The aim of this study is to examine physical education teachers’ and students’ views on the thesis and its part in the physical teacher education program at The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences. Does the view on the thesis differ between techers/students and the program with its curriculum and other policy documents? What does students/teachers value in a thesis? Does teachers/students have a mutual habitus concerning the thesis in the form of essay writing and how is this expressed? The study is based on a qualitative survey in which the respondents mainly answered open-ended questions with written answers. These answers have been categorized and analyzed with the aims of the study and the previous research in mind. The views on the purpose of the thesis differ, both within the group teachers/students and to a certain degree in relation to policy documents. The value of the thesis differs within the group. Two categories that frequently emerge when describing the contribution of the thesis are a deepened critical approach and essay-specific knowledge. A mutual habitus within this group concerning the scientific field of the education and profession was not found. Generally, the respondents seem to fall into two main categories, those who value a scientific approach highly and those who value it less. In conclusion, the view of the thesis is divided amongst the respondents. It is perceived as both important and without meaning in almost the same extent. The value it is considered contributing with varies both concerning the scientific approach and professional necessity.
