Thesis

As a graduate student, writing a thesis is one of the most important milestones on the road to degree completion. A successful thesis requires effective organization skills and thorough research and it is crucial that the appropriate steps are followed in preparing and submitting a thesis to GPS. Students should review these steps in the early stages of thesis writing. In this section you’ll find everything you need to know about the thesis process from the first draft to final e-submission for Master’s and Doctoral students, supervisors, and departmental units as outlined in the thesis guidelines. Deadlines for initial submission and for deposition of the final, corrected version of the thesis are also outlined in this section. Some students may find the style sheets provided here for both MS Word and LaTeX useful to their writing process. Before submitting the final, corrected copy of the thesis to GPS, the student should be familiar with the process for e-Thesis submission.
