Introduction to the Thesis - Led by Cynthia King

After progressing through your program's series of classes and working with a group of students and faculty in your studies of particular topics, many students find the solitary work of thesis research and writing to be extra challenging. There are many questions that arise, which we will explore in this workshop. Bring your notes and/or writing samples from your thesis/project, and we will help you take the next steps.
