Dissertations & Theses: Writing your Thesis

Student Research, RE: Master of Education, for example:

Student Research Opportunities, from

Students enrolled in the Master of Education program are required to become competent as consumers of educational research. We encourage our students—especially those who may pursue doctoral studies in the future—to become involved in research studies conducted by Cedar Crest College faculty.

Student research projects take many different forms, including:

  • The development of scholarly position papers on a critical issue in education
  • Policy research
  • Action research in teachers’ own classrooms
  • More formal quantitative and qualitative studies that may be presented at national conventions or submitted for publication in an educational journal


FAQ #4. Must I write a thesis to complete my degree? from

Not necessarily. All students seeking the degree of master of education must complete a capstone project. Candidates have a choice of a thesis (recommended if you plan to do doctoral studies in the future) or an integrated capstone application project.
