Some other helpful guides are linked here:

It is strongly encouraged that the student read through these webpages before submitting a thesis/dissertation.  

Many master's degrees (but not all) require a thesis for completion of the degree; similarly, many doctoral degrees require a dissertation. Students who are unsure of the requirements for their program should consult with their graduate program director/department chair, their department's website, or the graduate catalog.

At all stages of research, the student should be working closely with their research advisor, consulting with them for all types of questions. Should more questions arise, contact the Graduate School staff listed to the left.
