5. MS Thesis Requirements

Editor Notes: The thesis requirement or dissertation preparation and defense are listed below for students to learn more.

The MS degree in chemistry at the Zhejiang Normal University is research-based, which means that the central feature of the program of study is the pursuit of an independent research project under the instruction of a chemistry faculty member. For the degree programs, the project culminates in the preparation and defense of a thesis (MS) to be written by the student which provides background material and summarizes  the research project.

Some notable facts regarding the thesis or dissertation preparation and defense are given below:

A. The research advisor will determine the amount of work required for the thesis or dissertation.

B. The thesis shall form an original contribution to knowledge in the given discipline. The originality shall be shown either by the discovery of new facts or theories or by the demonstration of innovative and critical thinking. The format of the thesis can include non-traditional element.

C. The  thesis shall be the candidate's own account of his/her research and  shall be accompanied by a declaration to this effect signed by the  candidate. If a candidate's research work is part of a collaborative project, the thesis must clearly indicate the candidate's individual contribution and the extent of collaboration.

D. A candidate shall not submit work that has previously been included in a thesis, dissertation or report submitted to the University or any other institution in support of an application for a degree, a diploma or other qualification. The thesis shall be suitable for publication either as submitted or in an amended form.
