Keywords

publications, masters, thesis

Abstract

There are several publications that provide detailed information for doctoral students regarding the ins and outs of completing a dissertation. Many students at this level of academia have already written a master's thesis and are acquainted with the path that must be trod in order to produce a document that will capsulate their research and findings. For master's level students, however, there is little in print that speaks directly to them regarding challenges they may face and tips they may use in establishing a successful working relationship with a thesis chair and committee members. This paper outlines specific suggestions for graduate students embarking on writing a thesis that will not only strengthen the faculty-student working relationship, but assist the student in completing this work in a timely fashion.
