How To Write A Master Thesis In A Month
Ideally, when you are working through your Master’s program, you are working on your thesis paper piece by piece. You will be busy with classes, clinical work, your personal life, and working on this dreaded thesis paper all at the same time. It is easy for someone to get caught up in the stress and fast paced world of a graduate program. It is so fast paced that some people even lose track of the time and do not realize how close they are cutting it with creating their thesis statement on time. Creating a thesis statement is a very specific process that, in order to be considered correct, must be followed exactly. Below you will find a number of guidelines that will help you to check if your thesis statement is actually a thesis statement.
- Address subject matter on which reasonable people could disagree
- Take on a topic that can be supported with facts, and findings
- Express one main central idea
- Present your conclusions about the specific subject from your clinical research
- Make an argument
If your “thesis statement” is missing any of the elements listed above in the guidelines then it has no yet reached completion. You must include all of these elements in order for it to be complete. If you are on a tight schedule, for instance you need your thesis paper completed in a month, then is it time to get cracking. You will need to spread out all of your information in order to find a common theme from each of your clinical experiences. Once you have your common theme, and you have constructed your thesis statement, you can get started with constructing your thesis paper. Below is a guide on how to designate your time through out the month in order to complete your Master’s thesis paper on time.
- Days 1-2: You will create an outline of your thesis paper with all of the necessary sections and sub-sections. This will be the framework for presenting your data in order to support your thesis.
- Days 3-7: You will take each section and sub-section and write your main ideas and necessary information that must be included in each section.
- Days 8-10: You will develop full sentences for each section from the outline and first draft.
- Days 11-15: You will start writing out complete paragraphs for each section.
- Days 15-20: You will edit and revise your own work ensuring that your paper has a logical flow, and utilizes your data and clinical research appropriately.
- Day 21: You will send your paper out to be edited by a third party. (I.e. your professor, a local editing source, or an online editing source). At the same time you will start your references and citations page.
- Day 22: You will edit and revise your references and citations page to ensure that you have appropriately cited all sources used to create your paper.
- Days 23-30: You will edit, revise, and rewrite sections of your paper and send it to be edited one last time before you hand it in.
