Thesis and Dissertation Procedures
The purpose of the thesis or dissertation is to show evidence of the graduate student's development as a consumer of research and knowledge. The process of writing a thesis or dissertation starts very early -at the point of writing a proposal. Several graduate programs have formatting guidelines and thesis timelines of their own. It is important that students are mindful of these program-specific policies. Where those guidelines are more exacting than the ones listed here, and where a program’s deadlines are earlier than the ones listed here, those program-specific guidelines/timelines take precedence.
