Thesis and Dissertation Process

Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) requires a dissertation or doctoral project for all doctoral candidates and a thesis for all thesis option master’s candidates. The thesis or dissertation should be presented in a scholarly, well-integrated and properly documented manner, and should contain original work completed by the student under the supervision of an advisory committee. The information provided on this page is intended to assist students with information regarding formatting, deadlines, and submission of the thesis and dissertation.

Beginning Spring 2019, the Office of Graduate Studies will be purchasing the required bound copies of the thesis/dissertation/doctoral project for all graduating master’s and doctoral students.  Graduate Studies will have three copies bound for each student:  one for the Office of Graduate Studies, one for archival in the John B. Coleman Library, and one for the student.  A student should consult directly with his/her department regarding any additional copies required by the academic college.
