Senior university and college students often find themselves presented with a dramatic new challenge: the task of writing their first thesis. What is expected? What should the thesis consist of? How can the whole process be made a bit easier? With only one or two semesters to get the work done, what does the student need to do to ensure that the thesis is finished on time? InHow to Write a Better Minor Thesis, experienced advisors Dr. Paul Gruba and Professor Justin Zobel lay out step-by-step guidelines for writing a minor thesis. Based on decades of working with students undertaking their first piece of research, they take novice researchers through the process of thesis writing from initial steps to final on-time submission. Written in a friendly manner, this concise book—a companion to their senior text on the challenges of research writing,How to Write a Better Thesis—will help you to successfully tackle this fresh challenge. It contains sections of condensed material fromHow to Write a Better Thesis, complementing the entirely new material written for minor thesis students.
