Thesis and research
From preparing your thesis through to the final submission, consult with the Thesis Office for all relevant information. It’s important for research students to understand the thesis submission process and plan ahead.
Thesis Boost: 3-day writing retreat
Twice a year, GradProSkills organizes a 3-day writing retreat for graduate students who are writing a thesis. The event provides a motivating environment, supportive workshops and individual consultations that help participants adopt healthy and productive writing habits, and ultimately, advance in writing their thesis. The event brings together, in one place, the support services of Concordia Library, Student Success Centre, Campus Wellness and Support, Ombuds Office and Recreation and Athletics.
The Library provides you with the information resources and services fundamental to learning and the pursuit of knowledge. The library has many laptops and tablet computers for you to borrow.
Need help finding journal articles? Don't know how to begin your research? Ask a Librarian for research help. You can also consult the Research Guides by Subject and schedule a consultation with your Subject Librarian.
