Thesis/Dissertation Workshop


Thesis/dissertation format workshops are held several times during the school year. During the sessions, the assistant dean of the School of Graduate Studies provides a thorough survey of USU format requirements and guidelines, as well as journal and other departmental format options. He also addresses student concerns and problems regarding thesis preparation. Students should bring copies of completed portions of their papers (if possible) as well as the style guides they are using.
