  • until you graduate

 

 

GPA REQUIREMENTS      

All students must maintain

  • EACH TERM:  a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • A DEGREE GPA:  of at least 3.0

  2. WHAT KNOWLEDGE & IDEAS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED ON YOUR TOPIC & WHAT ARE THEIR STRENGTHS
  3. THESIS OUTLINE (Organizational Tool, your thesis structure)
    The outline gives an overview of the main points of your thesis. It clarifies the structure of your thesis and helps you find the correct focus for your work. The outline can also be used in supervision sessions, especially in the beginning. You might find that you need to restructure your thesis. Working on your outline can then be a good way of making sense of the necessary changes. A good outline shows how the different parts relate to each other, and is a useful guide for the reader. http://sokogskriv.no/en/writing/structure/structuring-a-thesis/#13_Outline
  4. ELEMENTS OF THE THESIS
    1. TITLE PAGE  (SAMPLE)
    2. TABLE OF CONTENTS  (SAMPLE)

      1. What is the purpose of an Abstract
        An Abstract is the brief summary of your research allowing the reader to quick determine your paper's purpose. It should be a concise summary of key points of your research and should summarize your research topic, research questions, participants, methods, results, data analysis, and conclusions
      2. What are the elements of a thesis Abstract
        1. What is the overall purpose of the study -- What is being addressed
          • Explain the problem
        2. Explain your research methods
        3. Describe your results
        4. Give your conculsion and recommendations
  5. MAIN PAPER
    1. INTRODUCTION
      State what you are trying to prove / disprove
    2. THESIS STATEMENT
      A thesis statement focuses your ideas into one or two sentences. It should present the topic of your paper and also make a comment about your position in relation to the topic. Your thesis statement should tell your reader what the paper is about and also help guide your writing and keep your argument focused.
      http://www.cws.illinois.edu/workshop/writers/tips/thesis/
    3. BODY
      The body of your thesis should show that your argument/critique/analysis is moving in a certain direction (the direction outlined in your introduction)
    4. CONCLUSION
  6. APA STYLE
    1. Thesis Style:  APA
