Planning Your Thesis Submission | GPLL42


Your graduate thesis is one of the ways that Concordia fulfills its mission to create and disseminate knowledge. As an official Concordia document, your thesis needs to meet certain requirements.

If you are a masters or doctoral student in the early or middle stages of drafting your thesis, this workshop is for you. This workshop will review the who’s who of thesis submission, the different kinds of theses (research creation, manuscript-based, traditional), and the differing requirements needed to submit. The workshop will also cover the important deadlines and procedures for thesis submission and graduation. Participants will be able to begin planning their own thesis timeline and submission plan during the workshop.


Learning Objectives

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
  1. Identify the formal academic committee and structures involved in thesis submission
  2. Describe the different kinds of theses, and special considerations for each
  3. Identify important deadlines for thesis submission
  4. Begin planning their own thesis timeline leading up to their defense and submission
