Graduate Student Support Resources

Are you a master’s or doctoral student working on a dissertation or thesis? Are you trying to find the right topic for your thesis or dissertation? Or maybe you’ve already started your research but don’t know how to structure your writing. Luckily you have a knowledgeable, supportive advisor to help you navigate the master’s or doctoral terrain. But what about everything else? Well don’t fear, DoctoralNet and MastersNet are here. (MastersNet is a sub-division of the DoctoralNet service platform.) DoctoralNet is an all-access online student support resource for building a thesis and dissertation, and WVU graduate and professional students now have full access to this service for FREE (see registration details below)!
