During the first quarter, a proposal for the thesis must be submitted to thesis readers when the project is early in its conceptual stages. The purpose is for the student to obtain guidance from the Thesis Committee about specific aims, study design features, and analytic methods before commencing on the project.
The Master Thesis Committee will notify the student of its decision within two weeks of receipt of the proposal. Rejected proposals can be resubmitted before the end of the quarter. Registration for the second quarter of master thesis units can take place only after successful completion of the first quarter thesis requirements.
The final version should be submitted at least two weeks before the end of the quarter. A suggested format for the thesis is available from the department Educational Coordinator. An electronic copy of the approved thesis, with three original signature sheets should be sent to the Educational Coordinator and to the Binding and Finishing department at least 72 hours before the deadline. Congrats to recent Ph. Keep up the fantastic work! The completion of a master thesis is an essential component of the MS, allowing students a chance to integrate epidemiologic principles learned in courses and to demonstrate: Familiarity with epidemiologic terms, reasoning and issues.
Ability to communicate scientific reasoning and argue analytically. Awareness of technical, methodological and other issues relevant to traditional and clinical epidemiologic research. Comprehension of statistical techniques, their proper use and limitations.
Knowledge in a substantive area. The thesis can take one of the four following forms: Original analysis of data, whether collected primarily for the thesis or as secondary data analysis.
This thesis form is most commonly selected by students. When you zoom in two-levels click on a department twice , individual dissertations are plotted on a line between each dissertation's home department and its next highest scoring department, in proportion to how much that dissertation uses words from each of those two departments.
The relative position of two dissertations is only meaningful when they are on the same radial line. Dissertations from other departments that have a high score for the central, focused department are also shown, colored.
For instance, take a look at Computer Science in You'll see three dissertations along the radial line to Linguistics - those are the three students that graduated from the Stanford NLP group that year. There are plenty of other places you find similar things that work, and a few places that don't.
In particular, small departments have less data and so are more susceptible to noise. Our experience building this browser emphasized the ways that good interactive visualizations can improve text modeling, and vice versa.
For instance, the visualization allowed us to experiment with many model variations LDA, tf-idf, etc. The model and visualization shown are our best so far, but both leave plenty of room for improvement.
The browser is build using Flare Visualization Library for Flash.
