Thesis Maps

A thesis map helps writers near the end organise and play with the structure of their thesis.

At the macro level, thre are
common structurings in different disciplines
. Does your macro structure conform to expectations? If not, do you have a good reason to vary? Write down your reason and test it out on a critical friend.

Download at least 5 theses in your field, print out the table of contents for each one and compare them to yours. Use these as a model for a thesis map. Write a new table of contents with a short description (synopsis) of each chapter and, if you can, list the subsections of the chapter

An example map is attached to this page.
