What is the difference between a thesis and a dissertation?
Last Updated: Jan 15, 2019
A work at a master’s level is called a thesis. A work at the Ph.D. level can be called a thesis or dissertation. Depending on the policy of the institution, they call thesis or dissertation differently. Check the institution in order to present thesis or dissertation correctly. Usually, a thesis or dissertation is indicated within the work.
