Writing your Thesis Proposal | GPLL23


The thesis proposal is an important step in the research process and can help both masters and doctoral students clarify their goals, questions, methods, and timeline. The thesis proposal is a road map to your research, and understanding how to effectively write and structure a thesis proposal can be a critical part of the research process.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to some of the different kinds of thesis proposals and encouraged to consider how their research fits into these guides. The workshop will provide opportunities to think through research questions, theoretical frameworks, methodologies, and all the important sections that make up a thesis. It will also offer suggestions for how to structure and plan your own thesis proposal.

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the important aspects of a thesis proposal
2. Understand how to structure and plan their own research proposal
3. Identify available resources for proposal writing
4. Plan their research process and timeline
