Your Thesis Proposal – It’s a One-Time Deal
You will probably write only one thesis in your lifetime. And these means that you will only write one thesis proposal in your lifetime. And that proposal will be pretty important. Without it being approved, you cannot actually produce and submit a thesis. At the same time, you have never written a thesis proposal before, so it is important to understand what it must contain and how to get it approved the first time out. If you have any concerns at all about your ability to produce a successful proposal, you should get in touch with EssayRepublic.com. We have a Ph.D. consultant waiting to help you.
Where it all Begins
As you finish up your coursework for your Master’s program, you will sit down with your advisor and discuss topics for your thesis. Hopefully, during your coursework, there have been topics that piqued your interest, and you can use those interests to come up with ideas for your research. You need to go into this meeting with your advisor with some options. You don’t want to end up with a topic that your advisor loves but that you do not. Be assertive about your preferences here.
Once the specific topic has been determined, you are ready to begin the next step – writing up that formal thesis proposal.
Writing up that Thesis Proposal
Your first step in crafting this proposal is to study your departmental guidelines very carefully. They will spell out exactly what you must include, the presentation format, and the order in which each component must occur. If there is anything that you do not understand, then you need to get with your advisor and get a full explanation. You do not want a proposal denied because you did not follow the guidelines.
Elements of a Thesis Proposal
While the details may differ, a thesis proposal is, in general terms, a roadmap – a plan for how you intend to conduct your research, answer your research question, and prove or dis-prove your hypothesis. Here, then, is what must be included:
- Your research question must be formed in scholarly language. Your hypothesis must state what you believe you will find as a result of your research.
- You must provide justification for the significance of the research you plan to conduct. Will you try to replicate earlier research in order to further validate it? Will your research add something new to your academic field? Will your research result in calling into question the results of earlier research?
- While you may not yet have chosen or devised your instruments, you will still have to explain your methodology and the types of instruments you intend to use.
- You will provide a general timeline for completion of each part of your research project and a final deadline date. (Understand that this may vary somewhat as you actually get into your project)
There are a number of reasons for a thesis proposal to be rejected the first time a student submits it to his/her advisor, or, if required, the committee. Among them are the following most common reasons:
- The student has not followed the guidelines for the format or structure of the proposal.
- The student has not conducted enough initial research to back up the justification of the research question.
- The proposal reflects grammar and composition errors
- The methodology design is considered incomplete
If your proposal is rejected the first time, you have become a member of quite a large “club.” However, you don’t want that to happen again. It is time to get some professional assistance, and EssayRepublic.com can definitely give you that.
