Welcome to Maryland's
Dissertation House

Get up to the minute information on the NEW website for the Dissertation House. The new site includes a blog and welcomes your feedback! After June 27, 2010, all Dissertation House information will be posted on this new site.

The Dissertation House provides participants with an opportunity for productive and rewarding scholastic engagement. Students who participate in this multi-day challenge will spend each day thinking, writing, and swapping ideas about their doctoral dissertations. Students will learn effective time-management skills; learn how to set small manageable goals, and will meet with a dissertation coach one-on-one to discuss and address any obstacles that might prevent them completing their degrees.

This is a multi-day (9am-5pm) commitment to focus on the dissertation. The Dissertation House activities focus on places where students typically have problems: conceptualizing a topic, developing a pre-proposal, writing a literature review, writing a proposal, analyzing data, writing the last chapter, and editing.

The Dissertation House is a project of PROMISE: Maryland's Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP)
 and is led by UMBC: An Honors University in Maryland.
