How To Make a Thesis
Less Painful and More Satisfying
by Mickie Edwardson
Distinguished Professor of Telecommunication, Emeritus
First, a thesis is supposed to demonstrate that you can take a project and bring it to a
genuine conclusion – very different from the usual undergraduate term paper that is not revised
after the teacher sees it and that is usually done during the last week before it is due. A thesis
provides, then, a new kind of work and frequently a new kind of skill.
Pick a topic that will help you professionally. Employers will sometimes ask about your
thesis or even want to see it – especially if you go into some branch of education. Your choice
of thesis can help you get a job or hold one.
Pick a topic that you are happy to talk about at a cocktail party. People will often ask you,
in making conversation, “What is your thesis about?” A good test of your wisdom in picking a
topic is the amount of pleasure you get in answering. Here’s why: A ^esis project involves some
frustrating times; your personal interest in your topic is your best help in getting through that
A thesis should be useftil. You’ll be happier about doing a thesis if you feel that somebody
will use it. And you’ll want to do a better job if you feel that somebody will read and use your
thesis. It is even better if the thesis is useftil not just at the moment of completion, but also later.
It should not be a snapshot of information that immediately becomes dated; the thesis should
ideally be something with information you can talk about and that people can use for years.
If you are going into any branch of education, try to make your thesis something that can
become a joumal article; such articles look very good on resumes.
A FEW TIPS
You can find out what is expected of you by reading theses – especially those chaired by
the person who will chair your thesis. And you get ideas for procedures to follow both from
theses and from other research projects.
In checking abstracts (Joumalism Abstracts and Dissertation Abstracts) go back at least to
1965, and look under several key terms – and not just in the “Mass Communication” section.
You’ll find lots of television references, for instance, under “Education” and “Psychology.”
Do your thesis carefully; you never know when a prospective employer will see it. And
certainly, you are finding out how critical ftiture graduate students can be of theses that have
been done before. You are also finding out how much these future students will depend on your
These are the “big six” journals that should not be omitted from your literature research:
Joumal of Broadcasting, Joumal of Communication, Joumalism Quarterly, Human
Communication Research, Public Opinion Quarterly, Communication Research. There are many
others, of course, that may – for an individual thesis – be even more important.
You will find many opportunities to help your fellow graduate students. I hope you will do
so. You will need help at some point.
