9780335227198: Succeeding with you Master's Dissertation: A Step-by-Step Handbook

  • How do I plan a dissertation proposal?
  • How do I clarify my research objectives?
  • How do I conduct a literature review?
  • What is essential to focus on while writing my Master's dissertation?
This practical book offers straightforward guidance to help Master's students to clarify their objectives and structure their work in order to produce a successful dissertation.

Using case examples of both good and bad student practice, the handbook takes students through each step of the dissertation process, from their initial research proposal to the final submission. The author uses clear illustrations of what students need to do - or not do - to reach their potential, helping them to avoid the most common pitfalls.

This essential handbook covers:

  • Producing focused and relevant research objectives
  • Writing your literature review
  • Citing your sources correctly
  • Clearly explaining your use of research methods
  • Writing up your findings
  • Summarizing your work by linking your conclusions to your initial proposal
  • Understanding marking schemes
Aimed primarily at Master's students or students on short postgraduate courses in business, humanities and the social sciences, this book is also key reading for supervisors and undergraduates considering postgraduate study.
