Master’s thesis writing is relevant for graduating Master’s studies. Master’s thesis is an independent work of the student, revealing his ability to use the knowledge acquired during the studies, to use scientific literature, to analyze empirical research carried out by himself and other authors, to present conclusions and concrete proposals for solving the problems analyzed in the work. Master’s thesis preparation is a very responsible process. Most of the problems in the preparation of Master’s thesis arise in choosing the topic of work, formulating the research problem, preparing theoretical and methodological part and formalizing the work according to the requirements stipulated in the methodological guidelines.
Master’s Thesis: Types
Master theses can be of two types: theoretical and practical. In the master’s thesis of theoretical nature it is important to raise the problem, to analyze the scientific literature, to carry out the research of the problem on the theoretical level, to fully evaluate the necessary theories and concepts, to present the solutions of the problem, to explain how these solutions can be fulfilled in Lithuanian conditions. Ideally, the author of the Master’s Thesis suggests a theoretical model. However, it is more difficult to prepare a theoretical job than a practical one, because it is not enough to carry out an overview of the material – you will simply not be allowed to defend such work.
Empirical research is considered to be the most important subject in the Master’s thesis. In order for the master’s thesis to be written perfectly, an empirical research project must be prepared and the necessary data collected for the research. Both original and secondary data may be collected. The author has to analyze the data accurately, evaluate them, clarify the results and compare them with the results of the research carried out by other scientists. In most cases, the master’s thesis must analyze the scientific and practical problems that exist in specific institutions. The author should always suggest how to solve these problems.
Master’s Thesis: Structural Parts
First of all, the master’s thesis must have a title page (often two title pages). The following is the content where the work structure is given. Master’s theses often include the content of pictures, tables and accessories. The following is an introduction that discusses the relevance of the selected topic, the topic’s research and the practical significance of the work, the subject of the work, the objective, the tasks, the hypotheses, the methods, the work structure. You will then need to provide a list of abbreviations (if required). The thesis further analyzes the theoretical analysis of the chosen topic, followed by a methodological part describing the process of preparation for empirical research. The analytical part that describes, analyzes, interprets and compares data goes on. After this paragraph, conclusions are drawn, followed by concrete proposals. Of course, do not forget to mention the list of sources, summaries (it may have to be provided at the beginning of the work) and the annexes.
As the writing of a master’s thesis requires a lot of time, effort and knowledge, it goes without saying that some students cannot accomplish this task themselves. In such cases, we are ready to help them.
