Word for thesis/dissertation?

Hi, all. I've got a character in a story I'm writing (medievalish fantasy setting) who's writing a thesis/dissertation in his academy, but I feel like those both sound too modern for the setting. I'd like to know both what they're called in any other languages you speak, just to help me generate some ideas for what to call what he's working on. If possible/if it makes sense to do so, I'd also like a literal translation (e.g., 電影/diànyĭng in Mandarin Chinese means "movie," but literally translates as "electric shadows"). Thanks!
