For every student undertaking a Masters degree program, the dissertation is a turning point many an academic career. Writing a successful dissertation requires tremendous effort, thorough research and professional writing abilities that is reflective of the capabilities and understanding of a Masters student. Providing an original, unique and well-researched dissertation is mandatory in order to successfully earn a Masters degree.
Of course, taking all the above steps into account while writing a dissertation is never easy. Cutting-edge writing abilities and thorough research skills are very important to write a high-quality dissertation. One very important aspect that isn’t commonly discussed after spending an overwhelming amount of time preparing a dissertation is to provide a logical conclusion to the entire dissertation itself.
A conclusion to the dissertation is mainly the area where students briefly provide their final thoughts and understanding over the dissertation topic. This is an important area of the dissertation, as students’ concentration tends to fade out at the end. It’s important to provide the necessary focus to the conclusion, because if the ending is weak, the entire dissertation will lose its effect (especially if the entire dissertation was done brilliantly throughout.) It’s akin to “sealing the deal” if you will.
A conclusion to a dissertation must be provided with clarity and precision. Since there isn’t too much to be written in a conclusion, its main standing point will be to provide its meaning with precision and clarity.
The conclusion is normally linked to the introduction of the Dissertation. The main expectation of a dissertation is that it must summarize all the key areas listed in the introduction of the dissertation. A well-thought-out conclusion to a dissertation is essential to strengthen the students’ understanding of the subject and their opinion. It also needs to create a lasting impression to the examiner and make him/her consider your opinion deeply.
It’s only normal that the tiresome activity of preparing and compiling the entire dissertation creates a “nagging feeling” in the students’ mind when working on an effective conclusion to the dissertation. They feel their interest fading away and find it difficult to spare the extra time to work on a well thought out conclusion. This is where students can ask for help from teachers, professors, peers, colleagues etc. Students can also review conclusions from other dissertations previously written on the particular subject.
Remember, the conclusion is your final opinion on the dissertation topic. It needs to be solid and convincing enough for the examiner to seriously considers even adopting your opinion.
