Thesis Writing and Presenting

When writing a master’s thesis, issues may arise that present barriers to the writing progress. While there is no single writing method, there are ways to locate the approach that best suits each person’s work and writing habits. The thesis Writing Seminar is a space for students to find tools and tips on successfully writing a masters thesis. The objective is to improve the writing process, to make it more efficient, and increase the likelihood of crafting a good thesis that you are proud of.
