CEAS 898. Thesis and Research Project Writing. 3 Hours.

This course is primarily designed to guide MA students through the writing development of their concluding graduate research, whether a final graduate research project or a thesis. Students will learn and apply the practices of effective communication and writing of research while completing the various components of their final projects. The intention of the class is to help students complete a high quality draft of their research, though deadlines and assignment may relate to practice in graduate level research writing in general. Within an interdisciplinary framework and an understanding of rhetorical distinctions across various epistemologies, students will practice relevant modeling of academic literature reviews, transparency in communicating research practices, analyzing/interpreting texts, data, or other information, and introducing and concluding their work. (Same as GIST 898.) Prerequisite: GIST 710. THE.
