ED 201 A (1113) Thesis Writing 1 - 2nd Sem SY2020-2021

SMU Graduate Studies requires, among others, that the candidate for a master’s degree is able to submit and orally defend a thesis/dissertation before formally graduating. The thesis is a major undertaking required of all MA/ MAED / MAT/ MST /MS candidates.

 The thesis is technically a proposition a candidate wishes to defend. Generally, it is a research investigation, either basic or applied. A thesis may be a verification or validation of existing principles, theories or laws, while a dissertation may be geared towards generating a new theory or principle.
