How to Write a Thesis
Laura Scudder Conference Room, Roosevelt Hall 121
Umberto Eco writes “You must write a thesis that you are able to write”, yet many students overlook the very simple foundational elements that are required in the development of their dissertation topic. This workshop will work through some of the key cornerstones involved in identifying and developing a thesis proposal. Students will have the opportunity to workshop their own thesis topics, learn how to recognize problems in the proposal writing process and how to implement strategies in overcoming them.
