Welcome to the Dissertation House


The Dissertation House is comprised of a series of workshops, meetings, and seminars that are held on college campuses and at conferences to facilitate successful completion of the doctoral degree. The workshops emphasize writing the dissertation, preparing for the defense, and communicating with faculty. The Dissertation House is a program of the National Science Foundation’s PROMISE: Maryland’s Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) and is supported by the Graduate Schools at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), the University of Maryland College Park, and the University of Maryland Baltimore.  Growth of the program is also attributed to the Council of Graduate School’s Ph.D. Completion Project.

    Learning about Dissertation House, putting up four goals for the week. Everyone is rushing me. Peer pressure…

  8. adpd says:

    Really enjoyed the presentation and exercises, beautiful and finely tuned program. Enjoyed especially the concrete examples of students who finished and what they shared about their experience. Strong in building upon community, peer support and encouragement.

    Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been
    blogging for? you made blogging look easy.
    The overall look of your website is great, let alone the content!

  11. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate
    a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off
    a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

  12. It’s in point of fact a great and helpful piece of info. I am
    satisfied that you shared this useful information with us.
    Please stay us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

    I constantly emailed this blog post page to all my contacts, since if like to read it afterward my friends will too.

  14. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great images or videos
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Fantastic blog!
