4 DOCTORAL DISSERTATION PITFALLS & HOW TO AVOID THEM

Posted by Daniel Sloan on Dec 22, 2015 8:01:12 AM

The path to successfully completing a doctoral degree is long, filled with many challenges to overcome. While times may sometimes be tough, preparation and determination are key, especially when it comes to your approach to the dissertation.

Here are some of the most common dissertation pitfalls, along with some tips to help you avoid them:  

  1. Identify area of research interests early: The earlier you identify your area of research interests, the better prepared you will be going into your program’s dissertation phase. It’s not often that students have trouble finding an area to research, it’s quite the opposite – many students have curious minds, which leads to having a broad list of interests. Don’t try to save the world with your first research study – find a specific issue and focus on that.

This is the second part of the key takeaways from this webinar. Here's the first part, in case you missed it:
