About this book

&i;How to Write a Masters Thesis&o; is a comprehensive manual on how to conceptualize and write a five-chapter masters thesis, including the introduction, literature review, methodology, results, and discussion/conclusion. Very often, a theory-practice gap exists for students who have taken the prerequisite methods and statistics courses in their masters program but who have yet to understand how to apply and translate what they've learned about the research process with their first major project.

Yvonna Bui demystifies this process by integrating the language learned in these prerequisite courses into a step-by-step guide for developing one's own thesis/project.
