A Successful Process for Graduate Writing

Academic Writing for Dissertations and Theses

What’s necessary for an introduction for a thesis or a dissertation: how do you write about methodology and provide a literature review, and what are some other sections in a typical thesis or dissertation?

About This Episode

Graduate writing – PhDs and Masters theses and dissertations – are long projects that adhere to a set of conventions. Usually, they include a literature review and a methodology section, sometimes a bit of history or theoretical framing. While not all theses or dissertations across subject areas will be similar, most will have sections that are very similar.

As a graduate writer, you can feel confident in your subject matter, and this episode will walk you through the how-tos of creating some of the standard sections that these genres of academic writing include.

You will learn:

  • How to write a successful thesis/dissertation introduction
  • What is a methodology section and how to write it
  • What needs to be included in a literature review and how to write it
  • How to paraphrase and model build without plagiarizing, but without over quoting in a thesis or dissertation
