The number one rule for writing your thesis is be organized. This may be different for everyone, but here is the basic structure (see red slides below) on what your masters thesis or dissertation should include. Also included are videos, books, writing tips, websites, and articles that may assist you.
Your specific discipline may have specific requirements for you to follow. Please consult with your thesis advisor whenever you have questions.
If you are having trouble with research please do not hesitate to reach out to a librarian (see the Stuck? page for contact information).
This video was created by Lund University in Sweden and is a great resource. Please keep in mind that they use slightly different words for their sections such as "summary" instead of "conclusion", but the content that should be included is the same and the way they explain it is succinct and accurate.
This video by Massey University (New Zealand) is a recorded lecture on how to write a thesis with several examples and good advice throughout. Please keep in mind that here too, some of the vocabulary is different but the content is useful.
