Brain Food: Getting Started on Your Thesis

In this workshop session, we provide foundational skills and strategies that will carry you through the thesis or dissertation process. Topics covered will include:

  • Managing the Thesis Process: We discuss goal setting and time management strategies to keep you motivated throughout your graduate degree
  • Formulating Your Research Question: Your research question forms the basis of your research project. In this session, we discuss how to formulate an effective research question and how to use it to guide and inform your thesis or dissertation from start to finish
  • Working with Data: With so many ways to obtain data it’s difficult to make sense of it sometimes. Come to this workshop to learn techniques on how to start working with your data and better answer your research question.

Participants will have the opportunity to obtain a Graduate Writing and Research Skills Letter of Recognition in acknowledgement of their efforts to expand their knowledge and skills. You are also welcome to visit the Library Events page to register and attend the other Brain Food workshops:
