Dissertation and Thesis Related Communication Materials for Graduate Students

Module by: The Cain Project in Engineering and Professional Communication. E-mail the author

The thesis or dissertation challenges graduate students to present a major intellectual project in a way that allows others to assess the writer’s knowledge of existing work and the writer’s contribution to a particular area of inquiry. The unfamiliarity of the genre and the process plus limited access to advisors and writing coaches familiar with advanced work in a specific field can slow the writer’s progress. For nine years Dr. Jan Hewitt of the Cain Project has worked with many thesis and dissertation writers in thesis writing groups. She has prepared the materials in this section.
