Proposal Writing for Thesis

Now, here is the time for starting our thesis paper. But before writing the thesis is necessary to write the proposal. I am in the process of writing a thesis proposal for my Master Degree. For me, Proposal writing for Thesis in Master Degree became the matter of a headache at first. It had to be 20-25 pages long, and I even don’t know the format of writing.

Before, I found myself stuck because I don’t have any idea starting thesis proposal. I haven’t done it before. There is so much information on the internet and the way of writing seems different from person to person. So I found many directions in which I could take my research, that it was challenging to nail down one project that would have a high chance of success. For many of us, the main problem we need to face is a selection of topic. Being the student of sociology topic doesn’t have any boundary. The topic is around us. Just select the topic that is convenient for you. Don’t try to make it vague. 

After many discussions with my supervisor, I finally selected a topic that was a great learning experience for me and also had a relatively high chance of success. Here I am not talking about the topic that I have selected. But I am somehow trying to provide you guidance for starting the proposal writing for the thesis, especially for Student of Master of Arts in Sociology
