Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

This THESIS OVERVIEW, based on requirements at Rice University, is designed to help graduate students understand the magnitude of a traditional Master's or PhD thesis. It shows what sections need to be included in a thesis, gives advice on what should be covered in each section, and makes specific recommendations for what questions need to be answered as a student writes up research results. Although this document is directly applicable to Rice graduate students, it can be modified for other universities and for those departments that require three published papers in lieu of a traditional thesis.
