Demystifying the Dissertation Journey

To many doctoral students, the design, implementation, and publishing of the dissertation seems like an overwhelming series of formidable tasks. Just when students feel they can see the light at the end of the tunnel as they complete their studies, many fear that it’s just an oncoming train! It is true that there is the possibility of completing the units required to graduate a doctorate program without ever completing the dissertation, which leads to the dreaded label of ABD, ‘All But Dissertated’. However, this typically occurs when the student has run out of time and out of extensions. Thankfully, this is the exception.
