Theses are like doctoral dissertations but are generally shorter and more narrowly focused. Though theses do not have to be published, students should aim for their work to be publishable as a single research article. Students must make this decision no later than the end of the Spring Semester of their first year as a full-time student. It is preferable that students make the decision around the middle of the spring semester of their first year to ensure that they have enough time to complete the milestones outlined in this section. Students that have elected the thesis option are required to enroll in GPLS Students will work with their thesis advisor to choose a course of study that forms a coherent structure and provides advanced expertise in the chosen area of emphasis. CMBS MS thesis option students are required to participate in a thesis boot camp as well as present a poster at the Graduate Research Conference held annually.
The thesis is the culmination of the three years of work in a Gemstone team. Below is a list of steps or milestones necessary to reach the final goal of a written thesis. Refer to the Timeline for Team Success for a description of team activities each semester. Because the Gemstone Honors Program is a multidisciplinary program and the types of research projects span multiple academic disciplines, traditions and majors, your team can chose the appropriate writing research format There are several styles of writing research such as APA American Psychological Association 6th edition, Chicago, MLA, MLS, and others. Mentors and librarians will guide and direct their teams on which research writing style is most appropriate for their study as is determined by the larger academic community.
