This division of the CSUSM Writing Center’s Online Resource Network is dedicated to serving the needs of graduate students. We will emphasize certain aspects of the thesis process and help guide you along, though you must keep in mind that the experts and the authority regarding your thesis are your professors.
The professors set the standards, they grade the work, they know the ins and outs of your discipline. It is not the Writing Center’s purpose nor responsibility to approve or disapprove any thesis ideas or the final paper written by the student. Each discipline has their own set of expectations and requirements of their graduate students, which the faculty administers.
