Goals for the Course

  • Get a start on the Masters Project and an understanding of what this entails.


The masters project l.jpg
The Masters Project

  • The name is misleading.

  • This is not a “Project” in the sense that “Project” has been used in your coursework so far.

  • Every SUNY campus is either a master thesis/project or comprehensive exam campus as a cumulating experience to your masters degree.

  • The experience of the Project is for the students to demonstrate that you can pose and test a question through research and experimentation.


What is the difference between a project and a thesis l.jpg
What is the difference between a Project and a Thesis?

  • A thesis is researching an original question that would lead to a publication.

  • A project question can be replication of an existing study or with research methods that are not as rigorous. Type of studies can be historical, statistical inference, survey or mathematical.
