Dissertation Boot Camp

The Office of Graduate Education has developed Dissertation Boot camp to help students progress through the difficult process of writing their dissertation. By offering an environment and support for intense, focused writing time, the camp provides participants with the structure and motivation to overcome typical roadblocks in the dissertation process. Our goal is to assist each participant in making significant progress towards completing their project.

This program is directed primarily towards students in the final stages of writing their dissertation, after their data has been collected. That is, for the camp to work, you must have largely completed your research and/or data collection and analysis so that you are ready to devote substantial time to writing. An individual working on a dissertation proposal, Master’s thesis, or other projects could also benefit from the structured time, space, professional advising, and motivational support of the program.
